792. Number of Matching Subsequences LeetCode Solution

Minimum Cost to Merge Stones

Number of Matching Subsequences Given a string s and an array of strings words, return the number of words[i] that is a subsequence of s.

subsequence of a string is a new string generated from the original string with some characters (can be none) deleted without changing the relative order of the remaining characters.

  • For example, "ace" is a subsequence of "abcde".

Example 1:

Input: s = "abcde", words = ["a","bb","acd","ace"]
Output: 3
Explanation: There are three strings in words that are a subsequence of s: "a", "acd", "ace".

Example 2:

Input: s = "dsahjpjauf", words = ["ahjpjau","ja","ahbwzgqnuk","tnmlanowax"]
Output: 2


  • 1 <= s.length <= 5 * 104
  • 1 <= words.length <= 5000
  • 1 <= words[i].length <= 50
  • s and words[i] consist of only lowercase English letters.
