## What is B+ tree in DBMS with example?

The B+ tree is a balanced binary search tree. It follows a multi-level index format. In the B+ tree, leaf nodes denote actual data pointers. B+ tree ensures that all leaf nodes remain at the same height. Therefore, a B+ tree can support random access as well as sequential access.

## What is B Tree explain with the help of suitable example?

All leaves are at the same level. A B-Tree is defined by the term minimum degree ‘t’. The value of t depends upon disk block size. Every node except root must contain at least t-1 keys….Time Complexity of B-Tree:

Sr. No. | Algorithm | Time Complexity |
---|---|---|

1. | Search | O(log n) |

2. | Insert | O(log n) |

3. | Delete | O(log n) |

## What is B tree example?

Example: Insert the node 8 into the B Tree of order 5 shown in the following image. 8 will be inserted to the right of 5, therefore insert 8. The node, now contain 5 keys which is greater than (5 -1 = 4 ) keys.

## When would you use a B+ tree?

B+ Tree are used to store the large amount of data which can not be stored in the main memory. Due to the fact that, size of main memory is always limited, the internal nodes (keys to access records) of the B+ tree are stored in the main memory whereas, leaf nodes are stored in the secondary memory.

## What is the order of B+ tree?

From the above discussion it is apparent that a B+ tree, unlike a B-tree has two orders, ‘a’ and ‘b’, one for the internal nodes and the other for the external (or leaf) nodes.

## What is difference between B-tree and B+ tree?

B+ tree is an extension of the B tree. The difference in B+ tree and B tree is that in B tree the keys and records can be stored as internal as well as leaf nodes whereas in B+ trees, the records are stored as leaf nodes and the keys are stored only in internal nodes.

## What is B+ tree order?

In computer science, a B+ tree is a type of tree data structure. The maximum number of keys in a record is called the order of the B+ tree. The minimum number of keys per record is 1/2 of the maximum number of keys.

## What are the differences between B and B+ trees?

In the B+ tree, keys are the indexes stored in the internal nodes and records are stored in the leaf nodes. In B tree, keys cannot be repeatedly stored, which means that there is no duplication of keys or records. In B+ tree, the leaf nodes are linked to each other to provide the sequential access.

## What is the difference between B+ tree and B-tree?

## What is B star tree?

B*-tree of order m is a search tree that is either empty or that satisfies three properties: The root node has minimum two and maximum 2 floor ((2m-2)/3) +1 children. Other internal nodes have the minimum floor ((2m-1)/3) and maximum m children. All external nodes are on the same level.

## Why do databases use B+ trees?

B-tree used for indexing and B+tree used to store the actual records. B+tree provides sequential search capabilities in addition to the binary search, which gives the database more control to search non-index values in a database.

## Is heap a binary tree?

The Heap is a Complete Binary Tree. At each level of a Complete Binary Tree, it contains the maximum number of nodes. But, except possibly the last layer, which also must be filled from left to right.
