Consider the following algorithm.
x ← 1
for
i is in {1, 2, 3, 4}
do
for
j is in {1, 2, 3}
do
x ← x + x
for
k is in {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}
do
x ← x + 1
x ← x + 5
Count the number of + operations done by this algorithm.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it looks like some type of for/next looping but the syntax is hard to parse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its countable ... but the syntax/notation is hard to read thru. without knowing what the format is trying to convey its difficult to understand the process that is being described

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm, im guessing it follows as such: x = 1 for i = 1 to 4 for j = 1 to 3; x=x+x for k = 1 to 6; x=x+1, x=x+5 4(3(1)+6(2)) operations is what it looks like to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x=n [x = n+n x = (n+n)+(n+n) x = (n+n)+(n+n)+(n+n)+(n+n) = 8(n) ] [x = 8(n)+6] x = 1 x'= 8(1)+6 x'= 8(8(14)+6)+6 x'= 8(8(8(14)+6)+6)+6 x'= 8(8(8(8(14)+6)+6)+6)+6 x = 60854

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pfft, i left the 14 in there ... should be a 1 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x = 7606 if its 1 to start with

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is that the answer for "Count the number of + operations done by this algorithm."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0of course not, i already surmised the results for that .... this was just an attempt to actually work the algorithm to see what the output would give us ...
