## Subarray with Given Sum

The following question was asked during a coding interview for Amazon:

You are given an array of numbers (non-negative). Find a continuous subarray of the list which adds up to a given sum.

#### Solve the problem here

```
# Brute Force
def subarray_slow(arr, target):
# Start the for loop for starting index of solution
for i in range(len(arr)):
s = 0 # initial sum
# Second index to find the required array
for j in range(i, len(arr)):
# adding the element to the sum for current arr
s += arr[j]
# Checking if sum is equal
if s == target:
return arr[i : j+1]
# if sum exceeds the target then we can terminate the loop
if s > target:
break
# No array found with sum equal to target
return []
```

Time Complexity : $O(n^2)$
