# Number of edges in mirror image of Complete binary tree

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

Given a complete binary tree of depth H. If the mirror image from the left and the right side of this tree is taken then:

Right Mirrored Image: Rightmost node of the every level is connected to mirrored corresponding node.
Left Mirrored Image: Left most node of the every level is connected to mirrored corresponding node.

The task is to find the number of edges after taking both the mirror images in the final tree. Examples:

Input: H = 1
Output: 10
2 edges in the original tree will get mirrored in the mirror images (left and right) i.e. 6 edges in total.
And the edges connecting the mirror images with the original tree as shown in the image above.
Input: H = 2
Output: 24
(6 * 3) + 3 + 3 = 24

Approach: Maintain the leftmost, rightmost nodes after each mirror image. Number of edges will change after each operation of mirror image. Initially, After right mirrored image: After left mirrored image: In complete modified tree: Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 // C++ implementation of the approach#include using namespace std; // Function to return the total number// of edges in the modified treeint countEdges(int H){     int edges, right, left;    edges = 2 * (pow(2, H) - 1);    left = right = H + 1;     // Total edges in the modified tree    int cnt = (edges * 3) + left + right;    return cnt;} // Driver codeint main(){    int H = 1;     cout << countEdges(H);     return 0;}

## Java

 // Java implementation of the approachimport java.io.*; class GFG {     // Function to return the total number    // of edges in the modified tree    static int countEdges(int H)    {         int edges, right, left;        edges = 2 * (int)(Math.pow(2, H) - 1);        left = right = H + 1;         // Total edges in the modified tree        int cnt = (edges * 3) + left + right;        return cnt;    }     // Driver code    public static void main(String[] args)    {        int H = 1;        System.out.println(countEdges(H));    }} // This code has been contributed by anuj_67..

## Python 3

 # Python 3 implementation of the approach # Function to return the total number# of edges in the modified treedef countEdges( H):     edges = 2 * (pow(2, H) - 1)    left = right = H + 1     # Total edges in the modified tree    cnt = (edges * 3) + left + right    return cnt # Driver codeif __name__ == "__main__":    H = 1;     print(countEdges(H)) # This code is contributed by ChitraNayal

## C#

 // C# implementation of the approachusing System; class GFG{     // Function to return the total number    // of edges in the modified tree    static int countEdges(int H)    {         int edges, right, left;                 edges = 2 * (int)(Math.Pow(2, H) - 1);        left = right = H + 1;         // Total edges in the modified tree        int cnt = (edges * 3) + left + right;        return cnt;    }     // Driver code    public static void Main()    {        int H = 1;        Console.WriteLine(countEdges(H));    } } // This code is contributed by AnkitRai01

## Javascript

 

Output:

10
