I'm not a mathematician by any stretch and I'm trying to translate some maths terms into simple maths terms. Please don't laugh, I do consider this complicated!
The equations in question are
O(n) and O(n ^ 2)
Now, I have read up on Wiki about this but it has been written (IMO) for people who already understand it!
I believe n ^ 2 translates to
the power of, in this case it is also the equivalent of squaring it (i.e.
n * n).
However, I can't get my head around
O in terms of what it is describing. Wiki says it's the limiting behaviour. So, does this mean
O is more of a description than a function or command? In my understanding, the following 2 equations are the same
