# Root to leaf paths having equal lengths in a Binary Tree

Given a binary tree, print the number of root to leaf paths having equal lengths.

**Examples:**

Input : Root of below tree 10 / \ 8 2 / \ / \ 3 5 2 4 Output : 4 paths are of length 3. Input : Root of below tree 10 / \ 8 2 / \ / \ 3 5 2 4 / \ 9 1 Output : 2 paths are of length 3 2 paths are of length 4

The idea is to traverse the tree and keep track of path length. Whenever we reach a leaf node, we increment path length count in a hash map.

Once we have traverse the tree, hash map has counts of distinct path lengths. Finally we print contents of hash map.
