Q: Equal Neighbors - JavaScript task

+2 votes

Write a JS function that finds the number of equal neighbor pairs inside a matrix of variable size and type (numbers or strings).

The input comes as array of arrays, containing string elements (2D matrix of strings).

Input:

[['2', '3', '4', '7', '0'],

 ['4', '0', '5', '3', '4'],

 ['2', '3', '5', '4', '2'],

 ['9', '8', '7', '5', '4']]

Output:

1


Input:

[['test', 'yes', 'yo', 'ho'],

 ['well', 'done', 'yo', '6'],

 ['not', 'done', 'yet', '5']]

Output:

2

The output is return value of you function. Save the number of equal pairs you find and return it.

Here is the solution mate:

function equalNeighborsCount(matrix) {
    let neighbors = 0;
    for (let row = 0; row < matrix.length; row++) {
        for (let col = 0; col < matrix[row].length; col++) {
            if (row < matrix.length-1) {
                if (matrix[row][col] == matrix[row + 1][col]) {
                    neighbors++;
                }
            }
            if(col<matrix[row].length) {
                if (matrix[row][col] == matrix[row][col + 1]) {
                    neighbors++;
                }
            }
        }
    }
    return neighbors;
}

console.log(equalNeighborsCount([[2,2,5,7,4],
    [4,0,5,3,4],
    [2,5,5,4,2]]
));
