The objective of this assignment is to;

  • Learn the working of Huffman Encoding Algorithm
  • Understand its application


10 Marks

Part 1:


Suppose you are working in an office and want to send a large size text document to your boss via email. Your file is too large for sending as an email attachment as your email service provider allows you to send files only up to a certain size limit.


To cope with this issue, you decided to use Huffman encoding algorithm to compress your document size. Given below is the frequency table for characters used in that document.

























Your Task:


Your task is to Create Huffman encoding tree using greedy approach.







10  Marks

Part 2:

In this part, you are provided with working code of Huffman algorithms huffman.cpp. The code is self explanatory and comments are added where necessary. This is a very nice, simple and powerful algorithm for compression.

We have applied this algorithm on two sample statements to get its encoded text. Output for both statements is given below.

You can see input statements and its associated results. Both input statements have same size (448 bits) but size of encoded text is different. You can verify the same results by running given code.

You need to understand the working of Huffman Algorithm. Attached C++ code will help.

You are required to explain the reasons behind difference in encoding/compression results. The first statement “A quick brown…” having size 448 bits was compressed to 259 bits after encoding. While the second statement “admission success…” having same size (448 bits) was compressed to 198 bits after encoding.

In above case, why one statement was compressed more than other by Huffman encoding algorithms?



You are required to submit your solution through LMS as MS Word document containing your answer to part 1 and your arguments and reasons to the given question in part 2.

tree to ban gai 2nd question mein kia krna h koi bta de

tree share kr do phir


55           83

         30         53

                  25      28

                        15      13

                               10    3

this is the basic technique and arrangement


i hope you are understand

no mistake h is mein 43+40 =83 ap ne 85 likha hua
yes tree correct h

its incorrect 

why incorrect?

ap ny nodes priority queue k accoring arrang nae keay


55           83

         30         53

                  25      28

                        15      13

                               10    3

AP plz detail main bat dain gin k krna kia hai assignmnt
bcz C++ progrm kion dyia gyia hai ??
Plz guide me if anyone know
