These are Haskell translations of Ninety Nine Lisp Problems.

If you want to work on one of these, put your name in the block so we know someone's working on it. Then, change n in your block to the appropriate problem number, and fill in the <Problem description>,<example in lisp>,<example in Haskell>,<solution in haskell> and <description of implementation> fields.

## 1 Problem 54A

(*) Check whether a given term represents a binary tree

Example:

* (istree (a (b nil nil) nil)) T * (istree (a (b nil nil))) NIL

The typical solution in Haskell is to introduce an algebraic data type:

data Tree a = Leaf | Branch a (Tree a) (Tree a)

Tree a
