# DIY: Find Interval Sets

Solve the interview question "Find Interval Sets" yourself in this lesson.

We'll cover the following

## Problem statement

You are given an array of intervals, and you have to organize them into sets such that only one interval can occupy a set at a time. Your job is to find the minimum number of sets we need to process all the intervals.

### Input

The input is an array of arrays. The nested arrays contain two integers representing the starting and ending points of the interval. The following is an example of input:

[[1, 4], [2, 5], [4, 8], [5, 6], [5, 8], [6, 7]]


### Output

The output is an integer representing the number of sets needed to process the intervals. The following is an example output:

3


## Coding exercise

You need to implement the function findSets(intervals), where intervals is the array of intervals. The function returns an integer representing the number of sets that are needed.
