Sum of nodes at maximum depth of a Binary Tree

Given a root node to a tree, find the sum of all the leaf nodes which are at maximum depth from root node.

Example:

      1
    /   \
   2     3
  / \   / \
 4   5 6   7

Input : root(of above tree)
Output : 22

Explanation:
Nodes at maximum depth are: 4, 5, 6, 7. 
So, sum of these nodes = 22

Approach: Calculate the max depth of the given tree. Now, start traversing the tree similarly as traversed during maximum depth calculation. But, this time with one more argument (i.e. maxdepth), and traverse recursively with decreasing depth by 1 for each left or right call. Wherever max == 1, means the node at max depth is reached. So add its data value to sum. Finally, return sum.

Below is the implementation for above approach:

Time Complexity: O(N), where N is the number of nodes in the tree.
