##### Insert a Node at the Tail of a Linked List Hackerrank

You are given the pointer to the head node of a linked list and an integer to add to the list. Create a new node with the given integer. Insert this node at the tail of the linked list and return the head node. The given head pointer may be null, meaning that the initial list is empty.

**Input Format **

You have to complete the Node* Insert(Node* head, int data) method. It takes two arguments: the head of the linked list and the integer to insert. You should not read any input from the stdin/console.

**Output Format **

Insert the new node at the tail and just return the head of the updated linked list. Do not print anything to stdout/console.

**Sample Input**

NULL, data = 2

2 –> NULL, data = 3

**Sample Output**

2 –>NULL

2 –> 3 –> NULL

**Explanation **

1. We have an empty list, and we insert 2.

2. We start with a 2 in the tail. When 3 is inserted, 3 then becomes the tail.

##### Solution of Insert a Node at the Tail of a Linked List Hackerrank

To insert a node at the tail, we need to find the last node and insert a new node after this node and update the next pointer of this node.

/* Insert Node at the end of a linked list head pointer input could be NULL as well for empty list Node is defined as struct Node { int data; struct Node *next; } */ Node* Insert(Node *head,int data) { Node *tmp = new Node(); tmp->data = data; tmp->next = NULL; if(head == NULL) { head = tmp; return head; } Node *current = head; while(current->next != NULL) { current = current->next; } current->next = tmp; return head; // Complete this method }

```

Node Insert(Node head,int x) {

// You only need to complete this method.
Node n = new Node();
n.data = x;
n.next = null;
if(head == null){
head = n;
return head;
}
else
{
Node c = head;
while(c.next != null){
c = c.next;
}
c.next = n;
return head;
}
}
```
