Doing homework for someone is against the membership agreement (as is asking for homework solutions). Show us what you know how to do in C++. Where are you getting stuck? What are the objects in your program. That is, are you looking to create a BST objcect or a BST _OF_ objects or BOTH? Again, show us where you are in understanding the problem and we can help you figure out how to procede.

Note that in any case you are asking for a lot for 20 points.

I will show u how data in a node of the BST looks like and how to use it in a BST. no more than that for 20 pts.

WARNING: There could be many syntactical errors in this example. if there are they all should be of the same kind: misplacing "templatizers".

template <class T>
class Node<T>{
  Node<T>::Node();
  T data;
  Node<T> *left_child, *right_child, *parent;
};

template<class T>
Node<T>::Node(Node<T> *l=NULL, T &d=T(),
                         Node<T> *r=NULL, Node<T> *p=NULL)
  :left_child(l), data(d), right_child(r), parent(p)
{}

//***********************************************//

template <class T>
class BST<T>{
  ...
  Node<T> *root;
};

template<class T>
BST<T>::BST(){
  root = NULL;
}

//***********************************************//

**NOTE**
1. The Node at which 'root' is pointing is the parent of all nodes in the tree. if root == NULL, the tree is considered empty and to have a height of -1.
2. The root node's parent must ALWAYS be NULL. you can temporarily change it for your program but be sure that you set it to NULL before you exit the function/method.

you will have to figure out algorithms for searching and moving date around in the BST without violating the property. there are many webpages that explain it very clearly. note that those pages will moslty contain algorithms or pseudo code. how to use them in C++? do it yourself. :)

Hope that buys me 20 pts.
