# Binary Tree Path Sum III

### How to Write C Program in Ubuntu/ Linux Programmerhttp://www.improgrammer.net
We started this site to inspire young minds to motivate and encourage them towards Programming Language. In this site you will get programming tutorials, tech, programming facts, programming fun and programming blogs.

You are given a binary tree in which each node contains an integer value.

Find the number of paths that sum to a given value.

The path does not need to start or end at the root or a leaf, but it must go downwards (traveling only from parent nodes to child nodes).

The tree has no more than 1,000 nodes and the values are in the range -1,000,000 to 1,000,000.

Example:

```root = [10,5,-3,3,2,null,11,3,-2,null,1], sum = 8

10
/  \
5   -3
/ \    \
3   2   11
/ \   \
3  -2   1

Return 3. The paths that sum to 8 are:

1.  5 -> 3
2.  5 -> 2 -> 1
3. -3 -> 11
```

### Approach 1:

```/**
* Definition for a binary tree node.
* public class TreeNode {
*     int val;
*     TreeNode left;
*     TreeNode right;
*     TreeNode(int x) { val = x; }
* }
*/
public class Solution {
public int pathSum(TreeNode root, int sum) {
if (root == null) return 0;
return pathSumFrom(root, sum) + pathSum(root.left, sum) + pathSum(root.right, sum);
}

private int pathSumFrom(TreeNode node, int sum) {
if (node == null) return 0;
return (node.val == sum ? 1 : 0)
+ pathSumFrom(node.left, sum - node.val) + pathSumFrom(node.right, sum - node.val);
}
}```
