2 Binary search trees binary search tree ("BST"): a binary tree that is either: empty ( null ), or a root node R such that: • every element of R's left subtree contains data "less than" R's data, • every element of R's right subtree contains data "greater than" R's, • R's left and right subtrees are also binary search trees. • BSTs store their elements in sorted order, which is helpful for searching/sorting tasks. 91 60 87 29 55 42 -3 overall root
3 Exercise • Add a method add to the IntTree class that adds a given integer value to the tree. Assume that the elements of the IntTree constitute a legal binary search tree, and add the new value in the appropriate place to maintain ordering. •tree.add(49) ; 91 60 87 29 55 42 -3 overall root 49

### 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.
