# C# Beats 80% but with Unsolved Mystery

• This solution performs alright.

I'm using a nested class to store the values I need to calculate the average per level. (This inner class stores the sum (numerator) and the number of values (denominator).)

The weird part is... if I change the nested class to a nested struct instead, the algorithm fails.

What's up with that?

``````public class Solution {
public class LevelSummary
{
public int Level;
public double Sum;
public int NoOfValues;
}

public IList<double> AverageOfLevels(TreeNode root) {

// Process the input
var levelSummaries = new List<LevelSummary>();
AverageOfLevels_Recurse(root, 0, levelSummaries);

// Prepare the output
double[] output = new double[levelSummaries.Count];
for (int level = 0 ; level < levelSummaries.Count; level++)
{
LevelSummary thisLevel = levelSummaries[level];
output[thisLevel.Level] = thisLevel.Sum / thisLevel.NoOfValues;
}
return output;
}

private static void AverageOfLevels_Recurse(TreeNode node, int level, List<LevelSummary> levelSummaries)
{
// If necessary, create the summary object for this level.
if (level > levelSummaries.Count - 1)
{
levelSummaries.Insert(level, new LevelSummary { Level = level });
}

// To store the averages, we will need the sum and the
var summary = levelSummaries[level];
// Note: Delaying the average calculation reduces the chance of a rounding error.
summary.Sum += node.val; // Increase the numerator for calculating averages.
summary.NoOfValues += 1; // Increase the demoninator for calculating averages.

// Process the left-branch.
if (node.left != null)
{
AverageOfLevels_Recurse(node.left, level + 1, levelSummaries);
}
// Process the right-branch.
if (node.right != null)
{
AverageOfLevels_Recurse(node.right, level + 1, levelSummaries);
}
}
}
