Given an array of integers `nums`

and an integer `target`

, return *indices of the two numbers such that they add up to *

.*target*

You may assume that each input would have ** exactly one solution**, and you may not use the

*same*element twice.

You can return the answer in any order.

**Example 1:**

**Input:** nums = [2,7,11,15], target = 9

**Output:** [0,1]

**Output:** Because nums[0] + nums[1] == 9, we return [0, 1].

**Example 2:**

**Input:** nums = [3,2,4], target = 6

**Output:** [1,2]

**Example 3:**

**Input:** nums = [3,3], target = 6

**Output:** [0,1]

**Constraints:**

`2 <= nums.length <= 103`

`-109 <= nums[i] <= 109`

`-109 <= target <= 109`

**Only one valid answer exists.**

**[Gary-brute force]**

- create two loop to find the target

[HashMap]

- using hashmap to note every target index
