Expert Solution
To determine

To fill:

To solve a problem using a divide-and-conquer algorithm, you reduce it to a fixed number of smaller problems of the same kind, which can themselves be _____, and so forth until _____.

To solve a problem using a divide-and-conquer algorithm, you reduce it to a fixed number of smaller problems of the same kind, which can themselves be reduced to the same finite number of smaller problems of the same kind; and so forth until easily resolved problems are obtained.

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

divide-and-conquer algorithm.

Calculation:

To solve a problem using a divide-and-conquer algorithm, you reduce it to a fixed number of smaller problems of the same kind, which can themselves be reduced to the same finite number of smaller problems of the same kind; and so forth until easily resolved problems are obtained.
