Remove Duplicates

Given a sorted list of numbers, remove duplicates and return the new length. You must do this in-place and without using extra memory.

Input: [0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2].

Output: 3.

Your function should modify the list in place so the first 3 elements becomes 0, 1, 2. Return 3 because the new length is 3.



Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text.

1  >>> a = [1, 2, 3]
2  >>> a[-1]
3  3
