GATE | GATE CS 2021 | Set 1 | Question 40
Consider the following recurrence relation.
Which one of the following options is correct?
(A) T(n) = Θ(n5/2)
(B) T(n) = Θ(nlogn)
(C) T(n) = Θ(n)
(D) T(n) = Θ((logn)5/2)
Explanation: Given, recurrence relation can be written as,
T(n) = T(n/2) + T(2n/5) + 7n
T(n) = T((5/2)n/5) + T(2n/5) + 7n
Since, sum of numerator (5/2+2 = 4.5) is less than denominator (5), so time complexity would be function itself.
Hence, T(n) = Θ(7n) = Θ(n)
