    I have some questions about data structures and algorithms

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4n2 , log3n , 3n, 20n, 2 , log2n , n2/3

    How can I graph these expressions.Andhow can I state the range of values of n for each expressions? which that expression is the most efficient?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4n2, log3n, n!, 3n, 20n, 2, log2n, n2/3

    How can I arange the following expressions by growth rate from slowest to fastest?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    when you answer these questions please express them step by step and give the details. (the numbers that is written right side on 'n' means power.

    Because you teacher wasn't detailed enough when he/she explained it or because you didn't pay close enough attention?

    Ok. I confess I skip the class but why don't you help me. I didn't want you to do my homework or etc.... I only want to understand and learn.

    First, read the FAQ. Especially the parts about showing your attempt, NOT asking someone to do your homework for you, etc.
    How can I graph these expressions
    If you're new to C++, you may be surprised to learn the graphics are not part of standard C++. It depends on your compiler / graphics library.
    Andhow can I state the range of values of n for each expressions? which that expression is the most efficient?
    I don't even know what this means, but it doesn't sound like a programming question...
    How can I arange the following expressions by growth rate from slowest to fastest?
    After you find the growth rates (derivitive? Is this calculus?) and, assuming that the growth rates are numbers (not formuli) you can use "if" statements to compare them: if(A>B). (Maybe they mean the growth rate for some givne value of n??? )

    [EDIT]
    Oh, I thing I get it... 4n2 means 4 squared?
