  • Last Updated : 12 Jun, 2021

Input: 
 



Output:
Weight of sub-tree for parent 1 = ((-1) + (5) + (-2) + (-1) + (3)) = 4 
Weight of sub-tree for parent 2 = ((5) + (-1) + (3)) = 7 
Weight of sub-tree for parent 3 = -1 
Weight of sub-tree for parent 4 = 3 
Weight of sub-tree for parent 5 = -2 
Node 5 gives the minimum sub-tree weighted sum. 
 

Approach: Perform dfs on the tree, and for every node calculate the sub-tree weighted sum rooted at the current node then find the minimum sum value for a node.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
int ans = 0, mini = INT_MAX;
 
vector<int> graph[100];
vector<int> weight(100);
 
// Function to perform dfs and update the tree
// such that every node's weight is the sum of
// the weights of all the nodes in the sub-tree
// of the current node including itself
void dfs(int node, int parent)
{
    for (int to : graph[node]) {
        if (to == parent)
            continue;
        dfs(to, node);
 
        // Calculating the weighted
        // sum of the subtree
        weight[node] += weight[to];
    }
}
 
// Function to find the node
// having minimum sub-tree sum
void findMin(int n)
{
 
    // For every node
    for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
 
        // If current node's weight
        // is minimum so far
        if (mini > weight[i]) {
            mini = weight[i];
            ans = i;
        }
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 5;
 
    // Weights of the node
    weight[1] = -1;
    weight[2] = 5;
    weight[3] = -1;
    weight[4] = 3;
    weight[5] = -2;
 
    // 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);
    findMin(n);
 
    cout << ans;
 
    return 0;
}

Complexity Analysis: 

  • Time Complexity : O(N). 
    In dfs, every node of the tree is processed once and hence the complexity due to the dfs is O(N) if there are total N nodes in the tree. Therefore, the time complexity is O(N).
  • Auxiliary Space : O(n). 
    Recursion stack.
