I have a review problem I am having problems with. This is the problem:
Be able to show the function, g(x) is O(f(x)) numerically as we have done in class
Use the definition of Onotation to prove that 2x^2+3x+4 is O(x^2) (Do not use the theorem on polynomial orders)
This is what I have so far.
2x^2+3x+4 <= ax^2
(2x^2 is of the highest order in this problem)
(2x^2+3x+4)/ax^2 <=1 = 2x^2/ax^2 = 2/a
Then my prof said to let a=3 because it is larger than two. I am not sure where to go to from there.
