Find the maximum GCD of the siblings of a Binary Tree

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2021

Given a 2d-array arr[][] which represents the nodes of a Binary tree, the task is to find the maximum GCD of the siblings of this tree without actually constructing it.

Input: arr[][] = {{4, 5}, {4, 2}, {2, 3}, {2, 1}, {3, 6}, {3, 12}} 
Output:
Explanation: 
 



For the above tree, the maximum GCD for the sibilings is formed for the nodes 6 and 12 for the children of node 3.

Input: arr[][] = {{5, 4}, {5, 8}, {4, 6}, {4, 9}, {8, 10}, {10, 20}, {10, 30}} 
Output: 10 
 

Approach: The idea is to form a vector and store the tree in the form of the vector. After storing the tree in the form of a vector, the following cases occur: 

  • If the vector size is 0 or 1, then print 0 as GCD could not be found.
  • For all other cases, since we store the tree in the form of a pair, we consider the first values of two pairs and compare them. But first, you need to Sort the pair of edges.
    For example, let’s assume there are two pairs in the vector A and B. We check if:
A.first == B.first
  • If both of them match, then both of them belongs to the same parent. Therefore, we compute the GCD of the second values in the pairs and finally print the maximum of all such GCD’s.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:  

C++




// C++ program to find the maximum
// GCD of the siblings of a binary tree
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find maximum GCD
int max_gcd(vector<pair<int, int> >& v)
{
    // No child or Single child
    if (v.size() == 1 || v.size() == 0)
        return 0;
   
    sort(v.begin(), v.end());
 
    // To get the first pair
    pair<int, int> a = v[0];
    pair<int, int> b;
    int ans = INT_MIN;
    for (int i = 1; i < v.size(); i++) {
        b = v[i];
 
        // If both the pairs belongs to
        // the same parent
        if (b.first == a.first)
 
            // Update ans with the max
            // of current gcd and
            // gcd of both children
            ans
                = max(ans,
                      __gcd(a.second,
                            b.second));
 
        // Update previous
        // for next iteration
        a = b;
    }
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver function
int main()
{
    vector<pair<int, int> > v;
    v.push_back(make_pair(5, 4));
    v.push_back(make_pair(5, 8));
    v.push_back(make_pair(4, 6));
    v.push_back(make_pair(4, 9));
    v.push_back(make_pair(8, 10));
    v.push_back(make_pair(10, 20));
    v.push_back(make_pair(10, 30));
 
    cout << max_gcd(v);
    return 0;
}
