Unformatted text preview: + 2 + 2 + 3 = 9, while you only give a sum of 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8 amortized costs. 4) If you write down aggregation method but then you perform other methods following your “aggregation method: ” notation, for example, you write immediately that “guess the amortized cost of add is …”, or “define a potential function as …”, etc, then you will be deducted by 1 point from what your other method deserves to earn. 5) If you don’t write anything, you get 0 out of 6 points. 6) If you indeed use the aggregation method and give the correct answer, then congratulations! You get full marks for this method (6 out of 6 points). b) Accounting method: Guess amortized cost is 4, each add will use 2 and we still have 2 credits for each element in the list for deleteOdd (we only use the 2 credits of odd elements in case of deleteOdd: one for the odd element itself and one for the element following it). Since each node can only be deleted once, 4 is enough. (If there is add among deleteOdds, the situation will be no worse if we have amortized cost of 4 because each...
