[Leet Code] Relative Ranks

  • The 1st place athlete's rank is "Gold Medal".
  • The 2nd place athlete's rank is "Silver Medal".
  • The 3rd place athlete's rank is "Bronze Medal".
  • For the 4th place to the nth place athlete, their rank is their placement number (i.e., the xth place athlete's rank is "x").
Input: score = [5,4,3,2,1]
Output: ["Gold Medal","Silver Medal","Bronze Medal","4","5"]
Explanation: The placements are [1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th].
Input: score = [10,3,8,9,4]
Output: ["Gold Medal","5","Bronze Medal","Silver Medal","4"]
Explanation: The placements are [1st, 5th, 3rd, 2nd, 4th].
  • n == score.length
  • 1 <= n <= 104
  • 0 <= score[i] <= 106
  • All the values in score are unique.
