Sorting algorithm that sorts number either from left most or right most hence divided into 2 a. LSD-> Least-significant-digit-first( considers digits from right to left) b. MSD->Most-significant-digit-first (considers digits from left to right) It uses Counting Sort Algorithm as a subroutine. Has a running time of O(nd) where (n=size of Array, d=number of digits). Has high memory usage O(n+d)

For the first round sort the right most digit into its respective conatiner 0 1 2 , 00 4 , 37 6 , 39 0 , 0 8 7 , 00 6 , 0 1 7 1 2 3 0 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 12 00 4 376 390 0 87 00 6 0 17 The new formed array becomes 390, 012, 004, 376, 006, 087, 017

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
