Lowest Common Ancestor of a Binary Search Tree

Given a binary search tree (BST), find the lowest common ancestor (LCA) of two given nodes in the BST. According to the definition of LCA on Wikipedia: “The lowest common ancestor is defined between two nodes v and w as the lowest node in T that has both v and w as descendants (where we… Continue Reading Lowest Common Ancestor of a Binary Search Tree

Lowest Common Ancestor of a Binary Tree

Given a binary tree, find the lowest common ancestor (LCA) of two given nodes in the tree. According to the definition of LCA on Wikipedia: “The lowest common ancestor is defined between two nodes v and w as the lowest node in T that has both v and w as descendants (where we allow a… Continue Reading Lowest Common Ancestor of a Binary Tree

Binary Tree Level Order Traversal II

Given a binary tree, return the bottom-up level order traversal of its nodes’ values. (ie, from left to right, level by level from leaf to root). For example: Given binary tree [3,9,20,null,null,15,7], 3 / \ 9 20 / \ 15 7 return its bottom-up level order traversal as: [ [15,7], [9,20], [3] ]

Validate Binary Search Tree

Given a binary tree, determine if it is a valid binary search tree (BST). Assume a BST is defined as follows: The left subtree of a node contains only nodes with keys less than the node’s key. The right subtree of a node contains only nodes with keys greater than the node’s key. Both the… Continue Reading Validate Binary Search Tree

Binary Tree Zigzag Level Order Traversal

Given a binary tree, return the zigzag level order traversal of its nodes’ values. (ie, from left to right, then right to left for the next level and alternate between). For example: Given binary tree [3,9,20,null,null,15,7], 3 / \ 9 20 / \ 15 7 return its zigzag level order traversal as: [ [3], [20,9],… Continue Reading Binary Tree Zigzag Level Order Traversal
