Solving Minimum Add to Make Parentheses Valid in go. Please try yourself first to solve the problem and submit your implementation to LeetCode before looking into solution.

Problem Description

Given a string S of '(' and ')' parentheses, we add the minimum number of parentheses ( '(' or ')', and in any positions ) so that the resulting parentheses string is valid.

Formally, a parentheses string is valid if and only if:

  • It is the empty string, or
  • It can be written as AB (A concatenated with B), where A and B are valid strings, or
  • It can be written as (A), where A is a valid string. Given a parentheses string, return the minimum number of parentheses we must add to make the resulting string valid.

Example 1:

Input: "())"
Output: 1

Example 2:

Input: "((("
Output: 3

Example 3:

Input: "()"
Output: 0

Example 4:

Input: "()))(("
Output: 4

Note:

  1. S.length <= 1000
  2. S only consists of '(' and ')' characters.
