# Day 8: Dictionaries and Maps | HackerRank Solution

Hello coders, today we are going to solve Day 8: Dictionaries and Maps HackerRank Solution in C++Java and Python.

## Objective

Today, we’re learning about Key-Value pair mappings using a Map or Dictionary data structure.

Given n names and phone numbers, assemble a phone book that maps friends’ names to their respective phone numbers. You will then be given an unknown number of names to query your phone book for. For each name queried, print the associated entry from your phone book on a new line in the form `name=phoneNumber`; if an entry for name is not found, print `Not found` instead.

Note: Your phone book should be a Dictionary/Map/HashMap data structure.

## Input Format

The first line contains an integer, n, denoting the number of entries in the phone book.
Each of the n subsequent lines describes an entry in the form of 2 space-separated values on a single line. The first value is a friend’s name, and the second value is an 8-digit phone number.

After the n lines of phone book entries, there are an unknown number of lines of queries. Each line (query) contains a name to look up, and you must continue reading lines until there is no more input.

Note: Names consist of lowercase English alphabetic letters and are first names only.

## Constraints

• 1 <= n <= 105
• 1 <= queries <= 105

## Output Format

On a new line for each query, print `Not found` if the name has no corresponding entry in the phone book; otherwise, print the full name and phoneNumber in the format `name=phoneNumber`.

Sample Input

Sample Output

Explanation

We add the following n = 3 (Key,Value) pairs to our map so it looks like this:

phoneBook = {(sam, 99912222), (tom, 11122222), (harry, 12299933)}

We then process each query and print `key=value` if the queried key is found in the map; otherwise, we print `Not found`.

Query 0: `sam`
Sam is one of the keys in our dictionary, so we print `sam=99912222`.

Query 1: `edward`
Edward is not one of the keys in our dictionary, so we print `Not found`.

Query 2: `harry`
Harry is one of the keys in our dictionary, so we print `harry=12299933`.
