 1662. Check If Two String Arrays are Equivalent

Given two string arrays word1 and word2, return true if the two arrays represent the same string, and false otherwise.

A string is represented by an array if the array elements concatenated in order forms the string.

Example 1:

Input: word1 = ["ab", "c"], word2 = ["a", "bc"]
Output: true
Explanation:
word1 represents string "ab" + "c" -> "abc"
word2 represents string "a" + "bc" -> "abc"
The strings are the same, so return true.

Example 2:

Input: word1 = ["a", "cb"], word2 = ["ab", "c"]
Output: false

Example 3:

Input: word1  = ["abc", "d", "defg"], word2 = ["abcddefg"]
Output: true

Constraints:
1 <= word1.length, word2.length <= 103
1 <= word1[i].length, word2[i].length <= 103
1 <= sum(word1[i].length), sum(word2[i].length) <= 103
word1[i] and word2[i] consist of lowercase letters.


# Algorithm

1. Combine with strings in a list as one string
2. Compare two strings

# Code

Java

Java

class Solution {
public boolean arrayStringsAreEqual(String[] word1, String[] word2) {
StringBuffer sb1 = new StringBuffer();
StringBuffer sb2 = new StringBuffer();
int length1 = word1.length, length2 = word2.length;
for (int i = 0; i < length1; i++)
sb1.append(word1[i]);
for (int i = 0; i < length2; i++)
sb2.append(word2[i]);
String str1 = sb1.toString();
String str2 = sb2.toString();
return str1.equals(str2);
}
}
