2446. Determine if Two Events Have Conflict

#### QUESTION:

You are given two arrays of strings that represent two inclusive events that happened on the same day, event1 and event2, where:

event1 = [startTime1, endTime1] and event2 = [startTime2, endTime2]. Event times are valid 24 hours format in the form of HH:MM.

A conflict happens when two events have some non-empty intersection (i.e., some moment is common to both events).

Return true if there is a conflict between two events. Otherwise, return false.

Example 1:

``````Input: event1 = ["01:15","02:00"], event2 = ["02:00","03:00"]
Output: true
Explanation: The two events intersect at time 2:00.
``````

Example 2:

``````Input: event1 = ["01:00","02:00"], event2 = ["01:20","03:00"]
Output: true
Explanation: The two events intersect starting from 01:20 to 02:00.
``````

Example 3:

``````Input: event1 = ["10:00","11:00"], event2 = ["14:00","15:00"]
Output: false
Explanation: The two events do not intersect.
``````

Constraints:

``````evnet1.length == event2.length == 2.
event1[i].length == event2[i].length == 5
startTime1 <= endTime1
startTime2 <= endTime2
All the event times follow the HH:MM format.
``````

#### SOLUTION:

``````class Solution {
func haveConflict(_ event1: [String], _ event2: [String]) -> Bool {
var aStart = event1.split(separator: ":")
var aStartTime = Int(aStart)! * 60 + Int(aStart)!
var aEnd = event1.split(separator: ":")
var aEndTime = Int(aEnd)! * 60 + Int(aEnd)!
var bStart = event2.split(separator: ":")
var bStartTime = Int(bStart)! * 60 + Int(bStart)!
var bEnd = event2.split(separator: ":")
var bEndTime = Int(bEnd)! * 60 + Int(bEnd)!
if (aStartTime...aEndTime).contains(bStartTime)
|| (aStartTime...aEndTime).contains(bEndTime) {
return true
} else if  (bStartTime...bEndTime).contains(aStartTime)
|| (bStartTime...bEndTime).contains(aEndTime) {
return true
}
return false
}
}
