# Program to find lowest possible integer that is missing in the array in Python

Suppose we have a list of numbers called nums, we have to find the first missing positive number. In other words, the lowest positive number that does not present in the array. The array can contain duplicates and negative numbers as well.

So, if the input is like nums = [0,3,1], then the output will be 2

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

nums := a set with all positive numbers present in nums

if nums is null, then

return 1

for i in range 1 to size of nums + 2, do

if i is not present in nums, then

return i

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

## Example

class Solution: def solve(self, nums): nums = set(num for num in nums if num > 0) if not nums: return 1 for i in range(1, len(nums) + 2): if i not in nums: return i ob = Solution() nums = [0,3,1] print(ob.solve(nums))

## Input

[0,3,1]

## Output

2
