Given a binary tree and a node K, the task is to delete the node K from it by making sure that tree shrinks from the bottom (i.e. the deleted node is replaced by bottom-most and rightmost node) using Level Order Traversal.
- Start searching from the root, the address of node which is to be deleted by traversing in level order-wise.
- Continue Traversing Tree to find the deepest and rightmost node in level order wise to find the deepest and the rightmost node.
- If the node to delete is different from rightmost deepest node, then replace the node to be deleted with righmost deepest node and delete the later node
- If the node to delete is same as rightmost deepest node, then simply delete the node.
Below is the implementation of the above approach.
Original Tree: 1 8 3 4 5 6 7 Deleting node with key 8: 1 7 3 4 5 6 Deleting node with key 1: 6 7 3 4 5 Deleting node with key 4: 6 7 3 5
