380. Insert Delete GetRandom O(1)

Design a data structure that supports all following operations in average O(1) time.

insert(val): Inserts an item val to the set if not already present. remove(val): Removes an item val from the set if present. getRandom: Returns a random element from current set of elements. Each element must have the same probability of being returned. Example:

// Init an empty set.
RandomizedSet randomSet = new RandomizedSet();

// Inserts 1 to the set. Returns true as 1 was inserted successfully.

// Returns false as 2 does not exist in the set.

// Inserts 2 to the set, returns true. Set now contains [1,2].

// getRandom should return either 1 or 2 randomly.

// Removes 1 from the set, returns true. Set now contains [2].

// 2 was already in the set, so return false.

// Since 1 is the only number in the set, getRandom always return 1.
public class RandomizedSet {

    List<Integer> list = new ArrayList<>();
    Map<Integer, Integer> map = new HashMap<>(); // value : index in array;
    /** Initialize your data structure here. */
    public RandomizedSet() {


    /** Inserts a value to the set. Returns true if the set did not already contain the specified element. */
    public boolean insert(int val) {
        if(map.containsKey(val)) return false;
        map.put(val, list.size()-1);
        return true;

    /** Removes a value from the set. Returns true if the set contained the specified element. */
    public boolean remove(int val) {
        if(!map.containsKey(val)) return false;
        int index = map.get(val);
        int last = list.get(list.size()-1);
        list.set(index, last);

        map.put(last, index);
        return true;


    /** Get a random element from the set. */
    public int getRandom() {
        java.util.Random r = new java.util.Random();
        return list.get(r.nextInt(list.size()));

 * Your RandomizedSet object will be instantiated and called as such:
 * RandomizedSet obj = new RandomizedSet();
 * boolean param_1 = obj.insert(val);
 * boolean param_2 = obj.remove(val);
 * int param_3 = obj.getRandom();
