Solving Distribute Coins in Binary Tree in go. Please try yourself first to solve the problem and submit your implementation to LeetCode before looking into solution.

Problem Description

In one move, we may choose two adjacent nodes and move one coin from one node to another. (The move may be from parent to child, or from child to parent.)

Return the number of moves required to make every node have exactly one coin.

Example 1:

Input: [3,0,0]
Output: 2
Explanation: From the root of the tree, we move one coin to its left child, and one coin to its right child.

Example 2:

Input: [0,3,0]
Output: 3
Explanation: From the left child of the root, we move two coins to the root [taking two moves].  Then, we move one coin from the root of the tree to the right child.

Example 3:

Input: [1,0,2]
Output: 2

Example 4:

Input: [1,0,0,null,3]
Output: 4


  1. 1<= N <= 100

  2. 0 <= node.val <= N

  3. 1<= N <= 100

  4. 0 <= node.val <= N
