algorithm Lowest common ancestor of a Binary Tree Finding lowest common ancestor


Example

Consider the tree:

enter image description here

Lowest common ancestor of nodes with value 1 and 4 is 2

Lowest common ancestor of nodes with value 1 and 5 is 3

Lowest common ancestor of nodes with value 2 and 4 is 4

Lowest common ancestor of nodes with value 1 and 2 is 2
