Implement Queue using Stacks

Implement the following operations of a queue using stacks.

  • push(x) -- Push element x to the back of queue.

  • pop() -- Removes the element from in front of queue.

  • peek() -- Get the front element.

  • empty() -- Return whether the queue is empty.


MyQueue queue = new MyQueue();

queue.peek();  // returns 1
queue.pop();   // returns 1
queue.empty(); // returns false


  • You must use only standard operations of a stack -- which means only push to top,

    peek/pop from top, size, and is emptyoperations are valid.

  • Depending on your language, stack may not be supported natively. You may simulate a stack by using a list or deque (double-ended queue), as long as you use only standard operations of a stack.

  • You may assume that all operations are valid (for example, no pop or peek operations will be called on an empty queue).
