# Remove Nth Node From End of List

Total Accepted: 46720 Total Submissions: 168596

Given a linked list, remove the nth node from the end of list and return its head.

For example,

   Given linked list: 1->2->3->4->5, and n = 2.

After removing the second node from the end, the linked list becomes 1->2->3->5.


Note:
Given n will always be valid.
Try to do this in one pass.

## SOLUTION 1:

1.使用快慢指针，快指针先行移动N步。用慢指针指向要移除的Node的前一个Node.

4  *     int val;

8  *         next = null;

15         ListNode dummy = new ListNode(0);
17
18         ListNode slow = dummy;
19         ListNode fast = dummy;
20
21         // move fast N more than slow.
22         while (n > 0) {
23             fast = fast.next;
24             // Bug 1: FORGET THE N--;
25             n--;
26         }
27
28         while (fast.next != null) {
29             fast = fast.next;
30             slow = slow.next;
31         }
32
33         // Slow is the pre node of the node which we want to delete.
34         slow.next = slow.next.next;
35
36         return dummy.next;
37     }
