Question

How many lines does his algorithm print? Write a recurrence and solve it.
function printaton(n: an integer power of 2) {
               if n > 1 {
                      printaton(n/2) 
                      printaton(n/2)
                      printaton(n/2)
                      for i = 1 to n ^ 4 do
                            printline("are we done yet?")
                }
}

a. Use Master's theorem to obtain an asymptotic solution.

b. Derive an exact solution by expanding the recurrence.

check_circleAnswer
Step 1

The given program splits into three subprograms with half of the input size each and then prints n^4 lines.

Hence, The recurrence is T(n) = 3T(n/2) + n^4 , T(1) = 1

  1. Using master theorem...
