Suppose there is a N x N grid, we place some 1 x 1 x 1 cubes that are axis-aligned with the x, y, and z. Here each value v = grid[i][j] is showing a tower of v cubes placed on top of grid cell (i, j). We view the projection of these cubes onto the xy, yz, and zx planes. Here, we are viewing the projection when looking at the cubes from the top, the front, and the side view. We have to find the total area of all three projections.
So, if the input is like [[1,2],[3,4]]
then the output will be 17.
To solve this, we will follow these steps −
Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −
class Solution(object): def projectionArea(self, grid): xy = 0 yz = 0 xz = 0 for r, row in enumerate(grid): yz += max(row) for c, col in enumerate(row): if grid[r][c] > 0: xy += 1 for col in zip(*grid): xz += max(col) return xy + yz + xz ob = Solution() print(ob.projectionArea([[1,2],[3,4]]))
