Given a Binary Tree, find density of it by doing one traversal of it.
Density of Binary Tree = Size / Height
Input: Root of following tree 10 / \ 20 30 Output: 1.5 Height of given tree = 2 Size of given tree = 3 Input: Root of following tree 10 / 20 / 30 Output: 1 Height of given tree = 3 Size of given tree = 3
Density of a Binary Tree indicates, how balanced Binary Tree is. For example density of a skewed tree is minimum and that of a perfect tree is maximum.
We strongly recommend you to minimize your browser and try this yourself first.
Two traversal based approach is very simple. First find the height using one traversal, then find the size using another traversal. Finally return the ratio of two values.
To do it in one traversal, we compute size of Binary Tree while finding its height. Below is C++ implementation.
Density of given binary tree is 1.5
