Basic Accuracy: 60.15% Submissions: 2494 Points: 1

Given two given numbers a and b where 1<=a<=b, find the number of perfect squares between a and b (a and b inclusive).

Example 1:

Input:
a = 9, b = 25
Output:
3
Explanation:
There are 3 perfect squares between 9
and 25. They are 9, 16, and 25.

Example 2:

Input:
a = 1, b = 7
Output:
2
Explanation:
There are 2 perfect squares between 1
and 7. They are 1, and 4.

You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function numOfPerfectSquares() which takes 2 Integers a and b as input and returns the number of perfect squares between a and b.

Expected Time Complexity: O(1)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Constraints:
1 <= a <= b <= 105
