Hi,

I am working on below challenge.
http://codingbat.com/prob/p196458


Given a map of food keys and their topping values, modify and return the map as follows: if the key "ice cream" has a value, set that as the value for the key "yogurt" also. If the key "spinach" has a value, change that value to "nuts".

topping2({"ice cream": "cherry"}) → {"yogurt": "cherry", "ice cream": "cherry"}
topping2({"spinach": "dirt", "ice cream": "cherry"}) → {"yogurt": "cherry", "spinach": "nuts", "ice cream": "cherry"}
topping2({"yogurt": "salt"}) → {"yogurt": "salt"}

i have not understood above description. pleASE advise

Rule 1. if the key "ice cream" has a value, (=the condition)
set that as the value for the key "yogurt" also. (=the action to perform)

Rule 2. If the key "spinach" has a value, (= condition)
change that value to "nuts". (=the action to perform)

Tell me, what exactly do you not understand about that?

Rule 1 changes
{"ice cream": "cherry"}
into
{"yogurt": "cherry", "ice cream": "cherry"}
What do you not understand?

Both rules change
{"spinach": "dirt", "ice cream": "cherry"}
into
{"yogurt": "cherry", "spinach": "nuts", "ice cream": "cherry"}
What do you not understand?

For the example
{"yogurt": "salt"}
the condition of rule 1 is NOT fullfilled and the condition of rule 2 is NOT fullfilled, hence
it stays unchanged.
What do you not understand?

Rule 2. If the key "spinach" has a value, (= condition)
change that value to "nuts". (=the action to perform)
based on above i thought
{"spinach": "dirt", "ice cream": "cherry"}
into
{"yogurt": "cherry", "spinach": "nuts", "ice cream": "cherry"}
instead of above it should be as below

{"spinach": "dirt", "ice cream": "cherry"}
into
{"nuts" "dirt"}

So, your code - without the commented lines - is this:
public Map<String, String> topping2(Map<String, String> map) {
    map.put("bread", "butter");
    map.put("ice cream", "cherry");
    return map;
}

Open in new window


So, in all cases your result is always {"bread": "butter", "ice cream": "cherry"}
In that case, I think you shouldn't be surprised that some tests fail...

Use what you learned already in other topping challenges.
You're certainly able to write that yourself.

Rule 1 changes
{"ice cream": "cherry"}
into
{"yogurt": "cherry", "ice cream": "cherry"}
What do you not understand?

Rule 1 is correctly implemented.
Rule 2 is not.

Why do you implement the condition
>> If the key "spinach" has a value,
like
>> if (map.containsValue("spinach")) {

containsKey() is not the same as containsValue()!!!
