Hackerrank - Weighted Uniform Strings Solution

# Hackerrank - Weighted Uniform Strings Solution A weighted string is a string of lowercase English letters where each letter has a weight.  Character weights are  to  from  to  as shown below:

We define the following terms:

The weight of a string is the sum of the weights of all the string's characters.  For example:

• A uniform string consists of a single character repeated zero or more times. For example, ccc and a are uniform strings, but bcb and cd are not.

Given a string, , let  be the set of weights for all possible uniform contiguous  substrings of string . You have to answer  queries, where each query  consists of a single integer, . For each query, print Yes on a new line if ; otherwise, print No instead.

Note: The  symbol denotes that  is an element of set .

Function Description

Complete the weightedUniformStrings function in the editor below. It should return an array of strings, either Yes or No, one for each query.

weightedUniformStrings has the following parameter(s):

• s: a string
• queries: an array of integers

Input Format

The first line contains a string , the original string.
The second line contains an integer , the number of queries.
Each of the next  lines contains an integer , the weight of a uniform subtring of  that may or may not exist.

Constraints

• will only contain lowercase English letters, ascii[a-z].

Output Format

Print  lines. For each query, print Yes on a new line if .  Otherwise, print No.

Sample Output 0

Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
No
No


Explanation 0

The weights of every possible uniform substring in the string abccddde are shown below:

We print Yes on the first four lines because the first four queries match weights of uniform substrings of . We print No for the last two queries because there are no uniform substrings in  that have those weights.

Note that while de is a substring of  that would have a weight of , it is not a uniform substring.

Note that we are only dealing with contiguous substrings. So ccc is not a substring of the string ccxxc.

### Solution in Python

from itertools import groupby
s = input()
p = set((ord(x)-96)*i for x,y in groupby(s) for i in range(1,len(list(y))+1))
for _ in range(int(input())):
print("Yes" if int(input()) in p else "No")
