453. Minimum Moves to Equal Array Elements LeetCode Solution

Minimum Cost to Merge Stones

Minimum Moves to Equal Array Elements Given an integer array nums of size n, return the minimum number of moves required to make all array elements equal.

In one move, you can increment n - 1 elements of the array by 1.

Example 1:

Input: nums = [1,2,3]
Output: 3
Explanation: Only three moves are needed (remember each move increments two elements):
[1,2,3]  =>  [2,3,3]  =>  [3,4,3]  =>  [4,4,4]

Example 2:

Input: nums = [1,1,1]
Output: 0


  • n == nums.length
  • 1 <= nums.length <= 105
  • -109 <= nums[i] <= 109
  • The answer is guaranteed to fit in a 32-bit integer.
