Problem of the day

You are given an arbitrary binary tree, a node of the tree, and an integer 'K'. You need to find all such nodes which have a distance K from the given node and return the list of these nodes.

Distance between two nodes in a binary tree is defined as the number of connections/edges in the path between the two nodes.

Note:

```
1. A binary tree is a tree in which each node has at most two children.
2. The given tree will be non-empty.
3. The given tree can have multiple nodes with the same value.
4. If there are no nodes in the tree which are at distance = K from the given node, return an empty list.
5. You can return the list of values of valid nodes in any order. For example if the valid nodes have values 1,2,3, then you can return {1,2,3} or {3,1,2} etc.
```

```
Consider this tree above. The target node is 5 and K = 3. The nodes at distance 1 from node 5 are {2}, nodes at distance 2 from node 5 are {1, 4} and nodes at distance 3 from node 5 are {6, 3}.
```

Detailed explanation

```
The first line will contain the values of the nodes of the tree in the level order form ( -1 for NULL node). Refer to the example below for further explanation.
The second line contains the value of the target node.
The third and the last line contains the integer K denoting the distance at which nodes are to be found.
Example:
Consider the binary tree:
```

```
The input for the tree depicted in the above image would be :
3
5 1
6 2 0 8
-1 -1 7 4 -1 -1 -1 -1
-1 -1 -1 -1
Explanation :
Level 1 :
The root node of the tree is 3
Level 2 :
Left child of 3 = 5
Right child of 3 = 1
Level 3 :
Left child of 5 = 6
Right child of 5 = 2
Left child of 1 = 0
Right child of 1 = 8
Level 4 :
Left child of 6 = null (-1)
Right child of 6 = null(-1)
Left child of 2 = 7
Right child of 2 = 4
Left child of 0 = null (-1)
Right child of 0 = null (-1)
Left child of 8 = null (-1)
Right child of 8 = null (-1)
Level 5 :
Left child of 7 = null (-1)
Right child of 7 = null (-1)
Left child of 4 = null (-1)
Right child of 4 = null (-1)
The first not-null node (of the previous level) is treated as the parent of the first two nodes of the current level. The second not-null node (of the previous level) is treated as the parent node for the next two nodes of the current level and so on.
The input ends when all nodes at the last level are null (-1).
```

Note :

```
The above format was just to provide clarity on how the input is formed for a given tree.
The sequence will be put together in a single line separated by a single space. Hence, for the above-depicted tree, the input will be given as:
3 5 1 6 2 0 8 -1 -1 7 4 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1
```

```
Print the values of all nodes at distance = K, from the given target node.
```

Note:

```
You do not need to print anything, it has already been taken care of. Just implement the given function.
```

```
3 5 1 6 2 0 8 -1 -1 7 4 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1
5
2
```

```
7 4 1
```

```
Target Node is 5. Nodes at distance 1 from 5 are {6, 2, 3} and nodes at distance 2 are {7, 4, 1}.
```

```
7 -1 14 9 -1 13 -1 20 9 -1 8 -1 -1 2 -1 -1 16 -1 -1
2
6
```

```
7
```

```
1 <= N <= 3000
0 <= K <= 3000
0 <= nodeValue <= 3000
Where nodeValue donates the value of the node.
