Explain divide and conquer algorithms

 Divide  and  conquer  is  probably  the  best  known  general  algorithm  design  method.  It   work according to the following general plan

i)  A problem's instance is separated into several smaller instances of the similar problem, ideally of about the same size.

ii) The smaller instances are solved

iii) If essential, the solutions obtained for the smaller instances are combined to get a solution to the original problem
