LeetCode 104 - Maximum Depth of Binary Tree Problem

Problem Statement

Given a binary tree, find its maximum depth.

The maximum depth is the number of nodes along the longest path from the root node down to the farthest leaf node.

Note: A leaf is a node with no children.

Example:

Given binary tree [3,9,20,null,null,15,7],

    3
   / \
  9  20
    /  \
   15   7

return its depth = 3

Solution:

# Definition for a binary tree node. # class TreeNode: # def __init__(self, x): # self.val = x # self.left = None # self.right = None class Solution: def maxDepth(self, root: TreeNode) -> int: if root==None: return 0 left = self.maxDepth(root.left) right = self.maxDepth(root.right) return max(left, right)+1
