Rotate Array

Rotate an array of n elements to the right by k steps.

For example, with n = 7 and k = 3,
the array

[1,2,3,4,5,6,7]


is rotated to

[5,6,7,1,2,3,4]

Note: Try to come up as many solutions as you can, there are at least 3 different ways to solve this problem.

def rotate(nums: Array[Int], k: Int) = {
  val r = k % nums.length
  reverse(nums, 0, nums.length - 1)
  reverse(nums, 0, r - 1)
  reverse(nums, r, nums.length - 1)
  nums
}

def reverse(nums: Array[Int], start: Int, end: Int): Array[Int] = {
  val diff = (end - start) / 2
  var tmp = 0
  for (i <- 0 until diff) {
    tmp = nums(start + i)
    nums(start + i) = nums(end - i)
    nums(end - i) = tmp
  }
  nums
}
