Unformatted text preview: x is at least 4(1/2-n7 2 )>= 2n/7 – 8 Then the recurrence will be T(n) <= T(n/7) + T(5n/7 + 8) + O(n) It can be solved by substitution like the solution in the book which shows us it is linear. If we divide the elements into groups of 3, the number of elements greater than x is at least 2(1/2(n/3) -2) >= n/3-4 Then the recurrence will be T(n) <= T(n/3) + T(2n/3 + 4) + O(n)...
