CS351 – QUIZ 2 Q: Consider an unsorted file with record size of 200 bytes and 60,000,000 records. Assume that during sorting 20 MB of sorted segments (runs) are generated using the heap sort algorithm. To obtain the final sorted file 2-way merge is used. Calculate the time needed to sort this file: indicate the times needed by both the heap sort and 2-way merge. Assume an IBM 3380 disk environment. Show your steps and work. Solution: Total file size = 60,000,000 * 200 = 12,000,000,000 bytes = 12,000 MB total number of segments(nsg) = file size / size of sorted segments = 12000 / 20 = 600

    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.
