CSES - Tree Matching
|Time limit:||1.00 s
||Memory limit:||512 MB|
You are given a tree that consists of $n$ nodes.
is a set of edges where each node is an endpoint of at most one edge. What is the maximum number of edges in a matching?
The first input line contains an integer $n$: the number of nodes. The nodes are numbered $1,2,\ldots,n$.
Then there are $n-1$ lines that describe the edges. Each line contains two integers $a$ and $b$: there is an edge between nodes $a$ and $b$.
Print one integer: the maximum number of pairs.
- $1 \le n \le 5 \cdot 10^5$
- $1 \le a,b \le n$
Explanation: One possible matching is $(1,2)$ and $(3,4)$.
