List of increasing integers algorithm

  1. Jan 19, 2007 #1
    Specify the steps of an algorithm that locates an element in a list of increasing integers by successively splitting the list into four sublists of equal (or as close to equal as possible) size, and restricting the search to the appropriate piece. (Hint: see binary search algorithm.)

    can any one help me solve this thanku

    Do you know much about binary search trees/algorithms?

    A good example, if your curious, would be Morse code.
