    Default need help with binary tree

    here is the question

    Specify and design, and implement a class for binary trees where the nodes are stored in an array list, similar to the way that a complete binary tree is usually stored. However, these binary tree do not need to be complete. The class should have methods to create the first node and to move cursor around the tree. After the first node, new nodes may be added only as children of the cursor.

    thanks

    Sorry, I don't see the question. All I see is the definition of an assignment. Questions end in questionMarks(?).

    Do you have any specific questions? Go ahead and ask them.

    Create an ArrayList and use its add() method to store a node in it.

    private ArrayList<T> array;
    private int cursor;

    public MyBinaryTree() {
    array = new ArrayList<T>();
    cursor = 1;
    }

    public void createFirstNode(T x) {
    array.set(1, x);
    }

    public void goToParent() {
    if (cursor != 1) {
    cursor = cursor / 2;
    }
    }

    public void goToFirstChild() {
    cursor = cursor * 2;
    }

    public void goToSecondChild() {
    cursor = (cursor * 2) + 1;
    }

    public void addFirstChildNode(T x) {
    array.set(cursor * 2, x);
    }

    public void addSecondChildNode(T x) {
    array.set((cursor * 2) + 1, x);
    }

    public void remove() {
    array.set(cursor, null);
    }

    public void makeEmpty() {
    array = new ArrayList<T>();
