4 c) What is the maximum number of insertions in the original tree without causing it to grow to 4 levels? Briefly explain your answer. (9 points) Solution: See following figure blue arrow For root level: there are three empty pointers, so we can insert: 3*5*4=60 elements For second level: Left node: there are two empty pointers: 2*4=8 elements Right node: 2*4=8 elements For leaf level: we can insert another 6 elements Sum up: we can insert 82 elements. d) What is the maximum number of deletions from the original tree without causing it to shrink to 2 levels? Briefly explain your answer. (9 points) Solution: See following figure red arrow In order to meet the requirement: for each node which is not the root, the number of elements n must 2 ≤n≤4 So we can only delete the elements on leaf level, because the number of elements in the nodes which is on the second level has met the lower bond of 2.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
