Check if a Binary Tree (not BST) has duplicate values

Check if a Binary Tree (not BST) has duplicate values

Examples:

Input : Root of below tree
         1
       /   
      2     3
             
              2
Output : Yes
Explanation : The duplicate value is 2.

Input : Root of below tree
         1
       /   
     20     3
             
              4
Output : No
Explanation : There are no duplicates.


A simple solution is to store inorder traversal of given binary tree in an array. Then check if array has duplicates or not. We can avoid the use of array and solve the problem in O(n) time. The idea is to use hashing. We traverse the given tree, for every node, we check if it already exists in hash table. If exists, we return true (found duplicate). If it does not exist, we insert into hash table.

using namespace std;
  
// A binary tree Node has data,
// pointer to left child
// and a pointer to right child
struct Node {
    int data;
    struct Node* left;
    struct Node* right;
};
  
// Helper function that allocates
// a new Node with the given data
// and NULL left and right pointers.
struct Node* newNode(int data)
{
    struct Node* node = new Node;
    node->data = data;
    node->left = node->right = NULL;
    return (node);
}
  
bool checkDupUtil(Node* root, unordered_set<int> &s)
{
    // If tree is empty, there are no
    // duplicates. 
    if (root == NULL)
       return false;
  
    // If current node's data is already present.
    if (s.find(root->data) != s.end())
       return true;
  
    // Insert current node
    s.insert(root->data);
      
    // Recursively check in left and right
    // subtrees.
    return checkDupUtil(root->left, s) || 
           checkDupUtil(root->right, s);
}
  
// To check if tree has duplicates
bool checkDup(struct Node* root)
{
    unordered_set<int> s;
    return checkDupUtil(root, s);
