## LeetCode: Arrays 101: Introduction &#8211; Solutions

Hello, LeetCode is a good place to practice programming by solving problems of all levels! After you solve a problem, you’ll get access to all submitted solutions, sorted by time and memory usage. That’s a nice way to compare your code to others and see what you did well and where you can improve. Here’s my solutions for the Arrays 101: Introduction card: Max Consecutive Ones class Solution: def findMaxConsecutiveOnes(self, nums: List[int]) -> int: max_counter = 0 counter = 0 for i in nums: if i == 1: counter += 1 else: if counter > max_counter: max_counter = counter counter = 0 if counter > max_counter: max_counter = counter return max_counter Find Numbers with Even Number of Digits class Solution: @staticmethod def is_even(value): return len(str(value)) % 2 == 0 def findNumbers(self, nums: List[int]) -> int: return_value = 0 for number in nums: if self....
