Interview Practice Extra 07 – Universal Value Binary Tree

Question Design an algorithm to verify that a tree is a universal value binary tree. Universal value binary tree means all value in that tree is the same. Solution There is two approach for this problem. One is with recursive function and another is with iterative function. For this problem, iterative function makes simpler answer. However,…

Interview Practice Extra 02 – Duplicates in List

Question Write an algorithm to remove duplicated node from a linked list. Solution There are many ways to do it. For the first one, as the simplest one, we could use 2 loops to compare each element with all other elements. However, this takes forever: O(n²). The second way Reference http://www.geeksforgeeks.org/remove-duplicates-from-an-unsorted-linked-list/

Interview Practice 15 – Mirror Image of Binary Tree

Question Construct 2 algorithms to make mirror image of any binary tree inputs, one of them using recursive method, another one using looping method. Mirror image means a binary tree that is the horizontal reflection of the original tree. Solution First, to do it in recursive method, we can perform pre-order traversal as usual, see preference….

Interview Practice 07 – Determine if Two Linked Lists Intersect

Question Given 2 linked list head pointers, determine whether they intersect at some point. Solution First of all, linked list can have loop or not, and this gives 3 possible situations. 1. For the 2 loops head pointer 1 and head pointer 2, move pointer 1 at normal speed, and pointer 2 at double speed….
