Program to Detect if Two Strings are Anagrams

Last Updated on

Hello

In the article, we will show how to find whether numbers are anagram. This article is part of interview preparation series.

What is anagram?

An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase in different order

For example: team and meat are anagram. Secure and rescue are anagram

How to check whether 2 words or anagram

To check out whether 2 words or phrases are anagram, you need to check whether each letter or words are common .

TEAM= T,E,A,M

MEAT = M,E,A,T

As you can see all of the characters are same, and just the differently arranged in both words.

Python code to find 2 words are anagram

def findAnagram(str1,str2):
	if(len(str1)!=len(str2)):
		return "Not found"

	str_arr1 =list(str1)
	str_arr2 = list(str2)
	j=0
	while(j<len(str_arr1)):
		if(str_arr1[j] in str_arr2):
			str_arr2.remove(str_arr1[j])
		else:
			return "Not found"
		j+=1
	return "Found"

print(findAnagram("meat","team"))

End note
