The probability of creating the perfect March Madness bracket is shockingly low - as in less than 1 in 9.2 quintillion (or 9,223,372,036,854,775,808) chance. Jeff Bergen, a mathematics professor at DePaul University, crunched the numbers...Show More Summary
In mathematics, the powering operation multiplies a number by itself a given number of times. For instance, the powering operation pow(2,3) multiplies 2 × 2 × 2 = 8. Your task is to write three functions that implement the powering operation, with time complexities O(n), O(log n) and O(1) in the exponent. When you are […]
