DIY: Binary Tree Level Order Traversal

Solve the interview question "Binary Tree Level Order Traversal" in this lesson.

Problem statement

Given a binary tree, populate an array to represent its level-by-level traversal. You should populate the values of each levels’ nodes from left to right in a string.


The input will be a binary tree, and you will be provided with its root node. The following is an example input:

   / \
  9  20
    /  \
   15   7


The output will be a string of values representing the values in a level order traversal from left to right. For the above input, the output will be:

"3 9 20 15 7"

Coding exercise

For this coding exercise, you need to implement the function traverse(root), where root is the root node of the binary tree. The function should return the level-by-level values of the binary tree in the form of a string.
