## B+ Tree Deletion

In this tutorial, you will learn about the deletion operation on a B+ tree. Likewise, you will discover working instances of deleting elements from a B+ tree in C, C++, Java, and Python.

## What is a B+ Tree?

A B+ Tree is primarily used for executing dynamic indexing on numerous levels. Compared with B-Tree, the B+ Tree stores the data pointers just at the leaf nodes of the Tree, which makes the search more interaction more exact and quicker.

Deleting an element on a B+ tree comprises three main events: searching the node where the way to be erased exists, erasing the key, and balancing the tree if required. Underflow is a circumstance when there is fewer number keys in a node than the base number of keys it should hold.

## Deletetion Operation

Before experiencing the steps beneath, one should know these realities about a B+ tree of degree m.

1. A node can have a maximum of m children. (for example 3)
2. A node can contain a maximum of m – 1 keys. (for example 2)
3. A node ought to have at least ⌈m/2⌉ children. (for example 2)
4. A node (except root node) ought to contain at least ⌈m/2⌉ – 1 keys. (for example 1)

While erasing a key, we need to deal with the keys present in the inward nodes (for example indexes) also on the grounds that the values are redundant in a B+ tree. Search the way to be erased then follow the accompanying steps.

Case I

The key to be erased is available just at the leaf node not in the indexes (or inner nodes). There are two cases for it:

1. There is more than the minimum number of keys in the node. Essentially erase the key.

2. There is an exact minimum number of keys in the node. Erase the key and borrow a key from the intermediate sibling. Add the middle key of the sibling node to the parent.

Case II

The key to be erased is available in the inside nodes too. At that point, we need to eliminate them from the inside nodes also. There are the accompanying cases for the present circumstance.

1. On the off chance that there is more than the minimum number of keys in the node, essentially erase the key from the leaf node and erase the key from the interior node also.

Fill the unfilled space in the inward node with the inorder successor.

2. On the off chance that there is a definite least number of keys in the node, erase the key and borrow a key from its immediate sibling (through the parent).

Fill the vacant space created in the index (interior node) with the borrowed key.

3. This case is like Case II(1) however here, empty space is produced above the quick parent node.

Subsequent to erasing the key, combine the vacant space with its sibling.

Fill the unfilled space in the grandparent node with the inorder successor.

Case III

For this situation, the height of the tree gets shrinked. It is a touch of complicated.Deleting 55 from the tree beneath leads to this condition. It very well may be perceived in the illustrations beneath.
