# LeetCode Assign Cookies: Java Solution

## Problem Statement

Assume that you are handing out cookies to children.

Assume also that you should give each child at most one cookie.

Each child `i` has a greed factor `gi`, which is the minimum size of a cookie that the child will be content with; and each cookie `j` has a size `sj`.

If `sj >= gi`, we can assign the cookie `j` to the child `i`, and the child `i` will be content.

Maximize the number of your content children and output the maximum number.

``````Function Signature (Java):
int findContentChildren(int[] g, int[] s)

Inputs:
g = [1,2,3]
s = [1,1]

Outputs:
1

You have 3 children and 2 cookies.

You can give one cookie to the child with greed factor 1, and he/she will be satisfied.

However, the next cookie is too small; we only have a cookie of size one, and both children left would only be satisfied with size 2 and 3 cookies.

Therefore, we can satisfy only one child.
``````

## TL;DR Code Solution

``````public int findContentChildren(int[] g, int[] s) {

Arrays.sort(g);
Arrays.sort(s);

int gp = 0;
int sp = 0;

while (gp < g.length && sp < s.length) {
if (s[sp] >= g[gp]) {
gp++;
}
sp++;
}

return gp;

}
