# 384. Shuffle an Array

## Description

Given an integer array nums, design an algorithm to randomly shuffle the array. All permutations of the array should be equally likely as a result of the shuffling.

Implement the Solution class:

• Solution(int[] nums) Initializes the object with the integer array nums.
• int[] reset() Resets the array to its original configuration and returns it.
• int[] shuffle() Returns a random shuffling of the array.

Example 1:

Input
["Solution", "shuffle", "reset", "shuffle"]
[[[1, 2, 3]], [], [], []]
Output
[null, [3, 1, 2], [1, 2, 3], [1, 3, 2]]

Explanation
Solution solution = new Solution([1, 2, 3]);
solution.shuffle();    // Shuffle the array [1,2,3] and return its result.
// Any permutation of [1,2,3] must be equally likely to be returned.
// Example: return [3, 1, 2]
solution.reset();      // Resets the array back to its original configuration [1,2,3]. Return [1, 2, 3]
solution.shuffle();    // Returns the random shuffling of array [1,2,3]. Example: return [1, 3, 2]



Constraints:

• 1 <= nums.length <= 50
• -106 <= nums[i] <= 106
• All the elements of nums are unique.
• At most 104 calls in total will be made to reset and shuffle.

## Solutions

private int[] nums;

}

public int[] reset() {
nums = Arrays.copyOf(original, original.length);
return nums;
}

for (int i = 0; i < nums.length; ++i) {

}
return nums;
}

private void swap(int i, int j) {
int t = nums[i];
nums[i] = nums[j];
nums[j] = t;
