# Input:{1,2,2,3,#,#,3,4,#,#,4} Output: true Expected:false what's wrong with my codes?

• ``````class Solution {

• I have the same question. After I draw the tree of {1,2,2,3,#,#,3,4,#,#,4}, I found it's like a triangle:
1
2--2
3----3
4------4
In that way, I think it should be the balanced. What's wrong with that? Why is the result expected to be false?

• "For this problem, a height-balanced binary tree is defined as a binary tree in which the depth of the two subtrees of every node never differ by more than 1."

The two subtrees of each child of the root (the 2s) have depths 2 and 0, and vice versa. Therefore, it is not balanced.
