Chapter 17 17.1 a) 9 b) n-1 c) 15 d) 2 n -1 e) 177 f) number of calls for Fib(n)= (Fib(n-1) + Fib(n-2) + 1) 17.2 Not necessarily. A recursive function can have multiple recursive call sites (such as Movedisk, BinarySearch, or Fibonacci), each which will have its own return address. Recursive functions with one call site are likely to have only one return point. 17.3 The number would print in the reverse 17.4 count(20) returns 11. 17.5 a.1) The result is 0. a.2) The result is 2. a.3) The result is 0. b) Power(a, b) = Floor(log b a) c) -- frame pointer retaddr to Power 1 7 frame pointer retaddr to Power 0 11 7 17.6 a) int Sigma(int k) { return (k*(k+1)/2); } b) Assuming each activation record requires 5 16-bit slots (10 bytes), place 102 activation records on the run-time stack before we exhaust the stack memory. This means we can call Sigma(101) (including main) but Sigma(102) will not work.
