The equals sign (=) has been inserted into the solution equation.

Key knowledge dot point 9:

  • The Master Theorem for solving recurrence relations of the form:
A function called T with one variable n and five parameters a, b, c, d and k. T is defined in two parts. For n greater than 1, T

​and its solution:​​​​ ​
A function called T with one variable n and three parameters a, b and c. T is defined in three parts. If the logarithm, base b,
