Time complexity  foor loop
Hello to all.
I am trying to figure out the time complexity for the following piece of code.
Java Code:for (int i = 1; i < n; i +=10) { for (int j = n; j > 0; j ) { product *= (i*j); } }
Thanks again!

ah.... huh?
Sounds impressive, but I have no clue what you want.
The inner loop executes n times for each run of the outer loop.
 Are you looking for the mathamatical interpretation for the above?
 Do you want to know which is more efficient: the above or product *= (i*j)?
 Do you want to use these in a program or are asking for some other reason?
Luck,
CJSLChris S.

Hi CJSL,
Yes I am trying to figure out the time complexity of the code.
I'm not using it in a program or looking for a mathematical interpretation.
I am trying to write the time complexity in big Oh notation.
If n = 50. Then the number of multiplications in the inner loop will be 50. In my notes it says the time taken to complete what the code is doing is approximately proportional to n.
Would it be reasonable to assume that the time complexity is of order n, i.e O(n)

time complexity
is the time complexity of this code is 0(n2). the outer for loop is executed n times and inner for loop is executed and hence the inner code is executed n*n= n2 times.
