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.

it looks like some type of for/next looping but the syntax is hard to parse

Its suppose to be discrete mathematics. I am not a math person at all.

its 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

was this a write up or did you copy/paste it?

hmm, 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

x=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

pfft, i left the 14 in there ... should be a 1 :)

x = 7606 if its 1 to start with

Is that the answer for "Count the number of + operations done by this algorithm."

of 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 ...
