1455. Check If a Word Occurs As a Prefix of Any Word in a Sentence

#### QUESTION:

Given a sentence that consists of some words separated by a single space, and a searchWord, check if searchWord is a prefix of any word in sentence.

Return the index of the word in sentence (1-indexed) where searchWord is a prefix of this word. If searchWord is a prefix of more than one word, return the index of the first word (minimum index). If there is no such word return -1.

A prefix of a string s is any leading contiguous substring of s.

Example 1:

``````Input: sentence = "i love eating burger", searchWord = "burg"
Output: 4
Explanation: "burg" is prefix of "burger" which is the 4th word in the sentence.
``````

Example 2:

``````Input: sentence = "this problem is an easy problem", searchWord = "pro"
Output: 2
Explanation: "pro" is prefix of "problem" which is the 2nd and the 6th word in the sentence, but we return 2 as it's the minimal index.
``````

Example 3:

``````Input: sentence = "i am tired", searchWord = "you"
Output: -1
Explanation: "you" is not a prefix of any word in the sentence.
``````

Constraints:

``````1 <= sentence.length <= 100
1 <= searchWord.length <= 10
sentence consists of lowercase English letters and spaces.
searchWord consists of lowercase English letters.
``````

#### SOLUTION:

``````class Solution {
fun isPrefixOfWord(sentence: String, searchWord: String): Int {
val strings:List<String> = sentence.split(" ")
for (index in strings.indices) {
if (strings[index].startsWith(searchWord)) {
return index + 1
}
}
return -1
}
}
