**Self Balancing Tree**

### Problem Statement :

An AVL tree (Georgy Adelson-Velsky and Landis' tree, named after the inventors) is a self-balancing binary search tree. In an AVL tree, the heights of the two child subtrees of any node differ by at most one; if at any time they differ by more than one, rebalancing is done to restore this property. We define balance factor for each node as : balanceFactor = height(left subtree) - height(right subtree) The balance factor of any node of an AVL tree is in the integer range [-1,+1]. If after any modification in the tree, the balance factor becomes less than −1 or greater than +1, the subtree rooted at this node is unbalanced, and a rotation is needed. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVL_tree) You are given a pointer to the root of an AVL tree. You need to insert a value into this tree and perform the necessary rotations to ensure that it remains balanced. Input Format You are given a function, node *insert(node * root,int new_val) { } 'node' is defined as : struct node { int val; //value struct node* left; //left child struct node* right; //right child int ht; //height of the node } node; You only need to complete the function. Note: All the values in the tree will be distinct. Height of a Null node is -1 and the height of the leaf node is 0. Output Format Insert the new value into the tree and return a pointer to the root of the tree. Ensure that the tree remains balanced. Sample Input 3 / \ 2 4 \ 5 The value to be inserted is 6.
