    M-Way Search Tree

    If I'm given a M-Way Search Tree, how would I determine it is a B-Tree with the parameter K < M, where K is the value that is to be inserted and M is the Order of the M-Way Search Tree. This is not something that I really need to code, but something to understand and then give a general summary on how to check for it, even general pseudo code would work. I know that an M-Way Search tree is also a B-Tree but not vice versa, so I just curious how they would tie in together with the specification of k < m before determining if the M-Way Tree is a B-Tree. Thank you for your time and help in advance.

    hm . . . quite unhelpful. If you can not contribute to answering the post, then its best for you to keep quiet.

    I already know what an M-Way Search Tree is and the properties it holds such as the higest level it may acquire and the max number of children a node may have. I'm more interested on how I can check to see if it is also a B-Tree with the condition of checking the key < order (m).
