Your problem is to write a psuedocode algorithm which will take in a ternary search tree and convert it into a binary search tree.

Recall that a ternary search tree is just a binary search tree where each node has an extra child. I will assume for this problem that in your binary search tree, a matching node becomes the right child; you can easily modify the algorithm if your teacher prefers it to be the left child.

Let's start with just the most basic psuedocode:

TERNARY_TO_BINARY_1:

set binary_node_1 = ternary_node_1
