# C program to create a mirror of the binary tree

In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a mirror of the binary tree using C program? By Nidhi Last updated : August 10, 2023

## Problem statement

Create a binary tree, and then create a mirror of the created binary tree.

## C program to create a mirror of the binary tree

The source code to create a mirror of the binary tree is given below. The given program is compiled and executed using GCC compile on UBUNTU 18.04 OS successfully.

// C program to create a mirror of
// binary tree

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

typedef struct node {
int item;
struct node* left;
struct node* right;

} Node;

{
Node* temp = *root;
Node* prev = *root;

if (*root == NULL) {
*root = (Node*)malloc(sizeof(Node));

(*root)->item = item;
(*root)->left = (*root)->right = NULL;
}
else {
while (temp != NULL) {
if (item > temp->item) {
prev = temp;
temp = temp->right;
}
else {
prev = temp;
temp = temp->left;
}
}
temp = (Node*)malloc(sizeof(Node));
temp->item = item;

if (item >= prev->item)
prev->right = temp;
else
prev->left = temp;
}
}

void Inorder(Node* root)
{
if (root != NULL) {
Inorder(root->left);
printf("%d ", root->item);
Inorder(root->right);
}
}

void createMirrorTree(Node* root)
{
Node* temp;

if (root == NULL)
return;

createMirrorTree(root->left);
createMirrorTree(root->right);

temp = root->left;
root->left = root->right;
root->right = temp;
}

int main()
{
Node* root = NULL;

printf("Tree Items: (INORDER) \n");
Inorder(root);

createMirrorTree(root);

printf("\nMirror Tree items: (INORDER)\n");
Inorder(root);
printf("\n");

return 0;
}

## Output

Tree Items: (INORDER)
10 20 40 50 60
Mirror Tree items: (INORDER)
60 50 40 20 10

## Explanation

Here, we created a self-referential structure to implement a Binary Tree, a function to add a node into the binary tree, and a recursive function createMirrorTree() to create the mirror tree of the created tree.

In the main() function, we created a binary search tree, and called the function createMirrorTree() to create a mirror tree and printed the items of the mirror tree.
