# Program to find sum of longest sum path from root to leaf of a binary tree in Python

Suppose we have a binary tree, we have to find the sum of the longest path from the root to a leaf node. If there are two same long paths, return the path with larger sum.

So, if the input is like

then the output will be 20.

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

Define a function rec() . This will take curr

if curr is null, then

return(0, 0)

bigger := maximum of rec(left of curr) , rec(right of curr)

return a pair (bigger[0] + 1, bigger[1] + value of curr)

From the main method do the following −

ret := rec(root)

return the 1th index of ret

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

## Example

class TreeNode: def __init__(self, val, left=None, right=None): self.val = val self.left = left self.right = right class Solution: def solve(self, root): def rec(curr): if not curr: return (0, 0) bigger = max(rec(curr.left), rec(curr.right)) return (bigger[0] + 1, bigger[1] + curr.val) return rec(root)[1] ob = Solution() root = TreeNode(2) root.left = TreeNode(10) root.right = TreeNode(4) root.right.left = TreeNode(8) root.right.right = TreeNode(2) root.right.left.left = TreeNode(6) print(ob.solve(root))

## Input

root = TreeNode(2) root.left = TreeNode(10) root.right = TreeNode(4) root.right.left = TreeNode(8) root.right.right = TreeNode(2) root.right.left.left = TreeNode(6)

## Output

20
