# Leetcode - Reformat Date Solution

Given a date string in the form Day Month Year, where:

• Day is in the set {"1st", "2nd", "3rd", "4th", ..., "30th", "31st"}.
• Month is in the set {"Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec"}.
• Year is in the range [1900, 2100].

Convert the date string to the format YYYY-MM-DD, where:

• YYYY denotes the 4 digit year.
• MM denotes the 2 digit month.
• DD denotes the 2 digit day.

Example 1:

Input: date = "20th Oct 2052"
Output: "2052-10-20"

Example 2:

Input: date = "6th Jun 1933"
Output: "1933-06-06"

Example 3:

Input: date = "26th May 1960"
Output: "1960-05-26"

Constraints:

• The given dates are guaranteed to be valid, so no error handling is necessary.

## Solution in Python

class Solution:
def reformatDate(self, date: str) -> str:
months = {'Jan': 1, 'Feb': 2, 'Mar': 3, 'Apr': 4, 'May': 5, 'Jun': 6, 'Jul': 7, 'Aug': 8, 'Sep': 9, 'Oct': 10, 'Nov': 11, 'Dec': 12}
day,month,year = date.split()
day = "%02d"%int(day[:-2])
month = "%02d"%months[month]
return "-".join((year,month,day))
