I understand the formal definition for big O notation but is there an intuitive interpretation?. For example, if(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is it reasonable to say that for large n f(x) grows at the same rate asCode (Text):f(x) = O(x[SUP]-1/4[/SUP])?Code (Text):n[SUP]-1/4[/SUP]

Thanks in advance
