Given a list of integers, return whether or not the occurrence of every value in the array is unique.

Note:Numbers can be negative.

```
nums = [5, 3, 1, 8, 3, 1, 1, 8, 8, 8]
Output:- True
```

Element | Ocuurrences |
---|---|

1 | 3 |

3 | 2 |

5 | 1 |

8 | 4 |

Since all occurrences are unique, it returns `true`

.

Let’s try another example:

**nums= [3, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3]**

To solve this problem we need to:

- find the number of times each element occurred
- check the occurrence value – it should be
for each element.unique different values

First, find out the occurrence number of each element in the given list(`nums`

). Then, save the occurrence value/number in `list_occur`

.

nums= [3, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3] list_element,list_occur=[],[] for i in nums: occur=nums.count(i) #no of occurrence if(i not in list_element): #ignoring appending of reapted occurrence list_element.append(i) #appending elements which done counting occurrence list_occur.append(occur) #occurrence values print(list_occur)

Now, since we have the occurrence value of each element in the list, we have to check if the occurrence number of every value in the list is unique.

To do this, we just compare the values within `list_occur`

.

nums= [3, 1, 1,1, 2, 2, 2, 3] list_element,list_occur=[],[] for i in nums: occur=nums.count(i) #no of occurrence if(i not in list_element): #ignoring appending of reapter occurrence list_element.append(i) #appending elements which done counting occurrence list_occur.append(occur) #occurrence values print(list_occur) #checking occurrences are unique for i in list_occur: occur=list_occur.count(i) if(occur>1): print("False") break else: print("True")

The whole program code is below, in the form of a function:

def solve(nums): list_ele,list_occ=[],[] for i in nums: occur=nums.count(i) if(i not in list_ele): list_ele.append(i) list_occ.append(occur) for i in list_occ: occur=list_occ.count(i) if(occur>1): return False return True print("nums=[3, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3] ",solve([3, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3])) print("nums=[-3, -1, -1, -1, -2, -2] ",solve([-3, -1, -1, -1, -2, -2])) print("nums=[5, 3, 1, 8, 3, 1, 1, 8, 8, 8] ",solve([5, 3, 1, 8, 3, 1, 1, 8, 8, 8]))
