# Maximum Average Subtree in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have the root of a binary tree; we have to find the maximum average value of any subtree of that tree. So if the tree is like − The output will be 6, this is because, for node 5, it will be (5 + 6 + 1)/ 3 = 4, then for node 6 it will be 6 / 1 = 6, and for node 1, it will be 1 / 1 = 1, so the max is 6.

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

• res := 0

• Define a method called solve(), this will take root

• if root is not set, then return a pair [0, 0]

• left := solve(left of root) right := solve(right of root)

• c := left + right + 1

• s := left + right + value of root

• ans := max of and ans s/c

• return a pair[c, s]

• From the main method, set ans := 0, call solve(root) and return ans

## Example

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

class Solution(object):
def brokenCalc(self, X, Y):
"""
:type X: int
:type Y: int
:rtype: int
"""
res = 0
while Y > X:
res += Y % 2 + 1
Y = Y // 2 if Y % 2 == 0 else (Y + 1)//2
return res + X - Y
