Product of all nodes in a Binary Tree in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Given with a binary tree containing nodes and the task is to find the product of all the nodes of a given binary tree.

In a binary tree, there is a root node which is the master node of all the nodes in a tree. A node contains data part, left pointer which will further create left subdirectory and a right pointer which will help in creating right subdirectory. So to traverse the tree, we can take a temporary pointer that will associate with left pointer to traverse left subdirectory or right pointer to traverse the right sub directory.



Nodes are-: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60
Product = 10*20*30*40*50*60 = 72,00,00,000


  • Input the node data

  • Traverse all the nodes starting from the root node and going to either left sub directory or right subdirectory for traversal.

  • Store the nodes data and keep multiplying the stored data with the new data

  • Print the value of a temporary variable holding the multiplied values.


Step 1 → create structure of a node
   structure node
      struct node
         int data
         Create node *left, *right
Step 2 → declare function to insert a node in a tree
   node* new_node(int data)
      Set node* temp = new node()
      Set temp→data = data
      Set temp→left = temp→right = NULL
      return temp
Step 3 → Declare a function to multiply all the nodes
   void leaf(node* root, int &product)
      IF root = NULL
         return 1
      return (root→data * node_product(root→left) *
Step 4 → In main()
   Create node* root = new_node(10)
   Set root→left = new_node(20)
   Set root→left→left = new_node(30)
   Set int product = node_product(root)
   Display product


 Live Demo

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
//structure of a node
struct node{
   int data;
   node *left, *right;
//function for inserting a new node
node* new_node(int data){
   node* temp = new node();
   temp→data = data;
   temp→left = temp→right = NULL;
   return temp;
//function for multiplying all the nodes
int node_product(node* root){
   if (root == NULL)
      return 1;
   return (root→data * node_product(root→left) * node_product(root→right));
int main(){
   node* root = new_node(10);
   root→left = new_node(20);
   root→right = new_node(30);
   root→left→left = new_node(40);
   root→left→right = new_node(50);
   root→right→left = new_node(60);
   int product = node_product(root);
   cout << "Product of all the nodes is: "<<product<< endl;
   return 0;


If run the above code it will generate the following output −

Product of all the nodes is: 720000000
