Given two polynomial numbers represented by a linked list. The task is to complete the function addPolynomial() that adds these lists meaning adds the coefficients who have the same variable powers.
Note: Given polynomials are sorted in decreasing order of power.
Input: LinkedList1: (1,x2) LinkedList2: (1,x3) Output: 1x^3 + 1x^2 Explanation: Since, x2 and x3 both have different powers as 2 and 3. So, their coefficient can't be added up.
Input: LinkedList1: (1,x3) -> (1,x2) LinkedList2: (3,x3) -> (4,x2) Output: 4x^3 + 6x^2 Explanation: Since, x3 has two different coefficients as 3 and 1. Adding them up will lead to 4x3. Also, x2 has two coefficients as 4 and 2. So, adding them up will give 6x2.
The task is to complete the function addPolynomial() which should add the polynomial with same powers return the required polynomial in decreasing order of the power in the form of a linked list.
Note: Try to solve the question without using any extra space.
Expected Time Complexity: O(N+M)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)
1 <= N, M <= 105
1 <= x, y <= 106
