# 2942. Find Words Containing Character

## Description

You are given a 0-indexed array of strings words and a character x.

Return an array of indices representing the words that contain the character x.

Note that the returned array may be in any order.

Example 1:

Input: words = ["leet","code"], x = "e"
Output: [0,1]
Explanation: "e" occurs in both words: "leet", and "code". Hence, we return indices 0 and 1.


Example 2:

Input: words = ["abc","bcd","aaaa","cbc"], x = "a"
Output: [0,2]
Explanation: "a" occurs in "abc", and "aaaa". Hence, we return indices 0 and 2.


Example 3:

Input: words = ["abc","bcd","aaaa","cbc"], x = "z"
Output: []
Explanation: "z" does not occur in any of the words. Hence, we return an empty array.


Constraints:

• 1 <= words.length <= 50
• 1 <= words[i].length <= 50
• x is a lowercase English letter.
• words[i] consists only of lowercase English letters.

## Solutions

Solution 1: Traversal

We directly traverse each string words[i] in the string array words. If x appears in words[i], we add i to the answer array.

After the traversal, we return the answer array.

The time complexity is $O(L)$, where $L$ is the sum of the lengths of all strings in the array words. Ignoring the space consumption of the answer array, the space complexity is $O(1)$.

public List<Integer> findWordsContaining(String[] words, char x) {

}
