1. In each of the following situations, indicate whether f = O(g), or f = O(g), or both (in which case f = T(g)). Briefly explain why.
(a) f(n)=10n5 +8n2,g(n)=20n4 +7n3 +300 (b) f(n) = log 8n, g(n) = log(n2)
(c) f(n)=n3logn,g(n)=13n 5
(d) f(n) = (3)n, g(n) = 6n3 2
2. We introduced in class that when analyzing algorithm complexity, we can ignore the lower-order terms and the coefficient of the leading term. For example, 3n + 5 ? n. Using the formal definition of the big-O notation, show that 3n + 5 = O(n) and n = O(3n + 5), in other words, 3n + 5 = T(n).
3. The Fibonacci numbers F0, F1, F2, . . ., are defined by the rule F0 =0,F1 =1,Fn =Fn-1 +Fn-2.
Use induction to prove that Fn = 20.5n for n = 6.
4. Write a python program to compute the Fibonacci numbers F8, F28, F48. What are the three values? What is the total number of additions needed by your program? Provide your answers as well as your source code.
