# Height of a complete binary tree (or Heap) with N nodes

Consider a Binary Heap of size N. We need to find height of it.

Examples :

```Input : N = 6
Output : 2
()
/    \
()     ()
/  \    /
()    () ()

Input : N = 9
Output :
()
/    \
()     ()
/  \    /  \
()    () ()   ()
/ \
()  ()
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Let the size of heap be N and height be h
If we take few examples, we can notice that the value of h in a complete binary tree is ceil(log2(N+1)) – 1.
Examples :

``` N    h
---------
1    0
2    1
3    1
4    2
5    2
.....
.....```
