Determine a recurrence relation for the divide-and-conquer sum-computation algorithm. The problem is computing the sum of n numbers. This algorithm divides the problem into two instances of the same problem: to compute the sum of the first [n/2] numbers and compute the sum of the remaining [n/2] numbers. Once each of these two sums is computed by applying the same method recursively, we can add their values to get the sum in question.
