# Find the node whose xor with x gives minimum value

Given a tree, and the weights of all the nodes and an integer x, the task is to find a node i such that weight[i] xor x is minimum.
Examples:

Input:

x = 15
Output:
Node 1: 5 xor 15 = 10
Node 2: 10 xor 15 = 5
Node 3: 11 xor 15 = 4
Node 4: 8 xor 15 = 7
Node 5: 6 xor 15 = 9

Approach: Perform dfs on the tree and keep track of the node whose weighted xor with x gives the minimum value.
Below is the implementation of above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std;`   `int` `minimum = INT_MAX, x, ans;`   `vector<``int``> graph[100];` `vector<``int``> weight(100);`   `// Function to perform dfs to find` `// the minimum xored value` `void` `dfs(``int` `node, ``int` `parent)` `{` `    ``// If current value is less than` `    ``// the current minimum` `    ``if` `(minimum > (weight[node] ^ x)) {` `        ``minimum = weight[node] ^ x;` `        ``ans = node;` `    ``}` `    ``for` `(``int` `to : graph[node]) {` `        ``if` `(to == parent)` `            ``continue``;` `        ``dfs(to, node);` `    ``}` `}`   `// Driver code` `int` `main()` `{` `    ``x = 15;`   `    ``// Weights of the node` `    ``weight[1] = 5;` `    ``weight[2] = 10;` `    ``weight[3] = 11;` `    ``weight[4] = 8;` `    ``weight[5] = 6;`   `    ``// Edges of the tree` `    ``graph[1].push_back(2);` `    ``graph[2].push_back(3);` `    ``graph[2].push_back(4);` `    ``graph[1].push_back(5);`   `    ``dfs(1, 1);`   `    ``cout << ans;`   `    ``return` `0;` `}`
