Given a Binary Tree, the task is to check whether the given Binary Tree is a perfect Binary Tree or not.
A Binary tree is a Perfect Binary Tree in which all internal nodes have two children and all leaves are at the same level.
Input : 1 / \ 2 3 / \ / \ 4 5 6 7 Output : Yes Input : 20 / \ 8 22 / \ / \ 5 3 4 25 / \ / \ \ 1 10 2 14 6 Output : No One leaf node with value 4 is not present at the last level and node with value 25 has only one child.
We have already discussed the recursive approach. In this post, the iterative approach is discussed.
Approach: The idea is to use a queue and a variable flag, initialized to zero, to check if a leaf node has been discovered. We will check:
- If the current node has two children then we will check for the value of flag. If the value of flag is zero then push the left and right child in the queue, but if the value of flag is one then return false because then that means a leaf node has already been found and in a perfect binary tree all the leaf nodes must be present at the last level, no leaf node should be present at any other level.
- If the current node has no child, that means it is a leaf node, then mark flag as one.
- If the current node has just one child then return false, as in a perfect binary tree all the nodes have two children except for the leaf nodes, which must be present at the last level of the tree.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
