Find and Replace Pattern

Title: Find and Replace Pattern Source:

You have a list of words and a pattern, and you want to know which words in words matches the pattern.

A word matches the pattern if there exists a permutation of letters p so that after replacing every letter x in the pattern with p(x), we get the desired word.

(Recall that a permutation of letters is a bijection from letters to letters: every letter maps to another letter, and no two letters map to the same letter.)

Return a list of the words in words that match the given pattern.

You may return the answer in any order.

Example 1:


  1. 1 <= words.length <= 50
  2. 1 <= pattern.length = words[i].length <= 20

Python solution
