Similar Problems:

Given a list of non-negative numbers and a target integer k, write a function to check if the array has a continuous subarray of size at least 2 that sums up to the multiple of k, that is, sums up to n*k where n is also an integer.

Example 1:

Input: [23, 2, 4, 6, 7],  k=6
Output: True
Explanation: Because [2, 4] is a continuous subarray of size 2 and sums up to 6.

Example 2:

Input: [23, 2, 6, 4, 7],  k=6
Output: True
Explanation: Because [23, 2, 6, 4, 7] is an continuous subarray of size 5 and sums up to 42.


  1. The length of the array won’t exceed 10,000.
  2. You may assume the sum of all the numbers is in the range of a signed 32-bit integer.

// Basic Ideas: presum + mod + first occurence
// Complexity: Time O(n), Space O(k)

    for preSum, i:=0, 0; i<len(nums); i++ {
        preSum += nums[i]
        if k !=0 { preSum = preSum%k }
