**Hi,**

1. Homework Statement

1. Homework Statement

In case of asymptotic notations we use the formula:

t = c * n

I dont know what is t and what is n? Is n same thing as the size of problem i.e. input data (or the data we have to process). Does t mean running time? why are we not accounting for number of instructions required to execute the program?

## Homework Equations

t = c * n

## The Attempt at a Solution

t = running time

c = constant

n = size of problem (i.e. the input data)

Some body please guide me.
