Root to leaf path product equal to a given number

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 13 Sep, 2021

Given a binary tree and a number, the return is true if the tree has a root-to-leaf path such that the product of all the values along that path equals the given number. The return is false if no such path can be found.

For example, in the above tree, there exist three roots to leaf paths with the following products.



  • 240 –> 10 – 8 – 3
  • 400 –> 10 – 8 – 5
  • 40 –> 10 – 2 – 2

Approach: The idea is to start traversing the tree recursively and divide the current node’s value from the product if it is divisible when recurring down, and check to see if the product is 1 when you reach the leaf node of the current path of the tree. 

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 

C++




// C++ program to check if there exists
// a root to leaf path product with
// given product
  
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
// Binary Tree Node
struct node {
    int data;
    struct node* left;
    struct node* right;
};
  
// Function to check if there exists a path
// with given product
  
// Strategy: divide the node value from the product
// if it is divisible when recurring down, and check
// to see if the product is 1 when you reach leaf
// node of the current path out of tree.
bool hasPathProduct(struct node* node, int prod)
{
    // return true if we run out
    // of tree and prod==1
    if (node == NULL) {
        return (prod == 1);
    }
    else {
        bool ans = 1;
  
        // Check if product is divisible by
        // current node, if not we are on wrong path
        if (prod % (node->data))
            return false;
  
        // otherwise check both subtrees
        int subProduct = prod / node->data;
  
        // If we reach a leaf node and prod
        // becomes 1 then return true
        if (subProduct == 1 && node->left == NULL
            && node->right == NULL)
            return 1;
  
        if (node->left)
            ans = hasPathProduct(node->left, subProduct);
        if (node->right)
            ans = hasPathProduct(node->right, subProduct);
  
        return ans;
    }
}
  
/* UTILITY FUNCTIONS */
// Helper function that allocates
// a new node with the given data
// and NULL left and right pointers
struct node* newnode(int data)
{
    struct node* newNode = new node();
    newNode->data = data;
    newNode->left = NULL;
    newNode->right = NULL;
  
    return (newNode);
}
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int prod = 400;
  
    /* Constructed binary tree is 
            10 
            / \ 
           8   2 
          / \ / 
         3    5 2 
    */
  
    struct node* root = newnode(10);
    root->left = newnode(8);
    root->right = newnode(2);
    root->left->left = newnode(3);
    root->left->right = newnode(5);
    root->right->left = newnode(2);
  
    if (hasPathProduct(root, prod))
        cout << "YES";
    else
        cout << "NO";
  
    return 0;
}
