Trees are identical or not

Implement a code to determine whether given trees are identical or not.

Time complexity : O(m)

Number of nodes in tree1 = m
Number of nodes in tree2 = n, m < n.
Then Time Complexity = O(m).


In the given image



Step 1 : We take two trees as input.
Step 2 : If given two trees are empty then they are identical.
a)    Tree1 = NULL and Tree2 = NULL, print true.
Step 3 : If both trees are not empty, then first compare root nodes, then recursively go to the left subtree and apply the same function on it. Then go to the right subtree and apply function there.
a)    Check root nodes are equal or not.
b)    Then go to left subtree call identical(left subtree).
c)    Then go to right subtree call identical(right subtree).
d)    If these three are true then, print True.
Step 4 : Else print false.
Step 5 :  call the function on the given two trees, if true print “Identical”, else print “Not Identical”.
