In the iterative way You can only do breathe first traversal in iterative way. Though you can still make it recursive by calling itself in each loop, but you will not benefit from it. It is similar to doing depth first traversal, instead you use a FIFO queue to store…

Question Design an algorithm to verify that a tree is a universal value binary tree. Universal value binary tree means all value in that tree is the same. Solution There is two approach for this problem. One is with recursive function and another is with iterative function. For this problem,…

Question Construct an algorithm so that the Nth item of  Fibonacci Sequence can be found in the shortest time. Definition of Fibonacci Sequence is: = 0 , when n = 0 f(n) = 1 , when n = 1 = f(n-1) + f(n-2), when n > 1 Solution There are many solutions for this, the…

Question Construct 2 algorithms to make mirror image of any binary tree inputs, one of them using recursive method, another one using looping method. Mirror image means a binary tree that is the horizontal reflection of the original tree. Solution First, to do it in recursive method, we can perform…

Question Get the greatest distance between two nodes in a binary tree. Assume links between nodes are bidirectional. Distance is defined as the amount of nodes connected along the path linked two nodes. Write an algorithm to calculate distance between two nodes. Take the figure at the right, the greatest…

Question Convert binary search tree into doubly linked list. It’s required not to create any new node, but only turning pointers. Solution The following shows the concept of this question. 8 / 6 0 -> 5 = 6 = 7 = 8 = 9 = 0 = 1 / / 5 7 9 1 First, since node…
