problem in the half of odd integer
Hi
this a an algorithm that I have found in the internet ,all the things are OK but just consider n=5 ,the last statement would be like this:
Java Code:return BinarySum(A,0,[5/2])+BinarySum(A,0+[5/2],[5/2])
:mad:
Java Code:Algorithm BinarySum(A,i,n) Input:An array A and integers i and n Output:The sum of integers in A starting at index i if n=1 then return A[i] return BinarySum(A,i,[n/2])+BinarySum(A,i+[n/2],[n/2])

If you divide two integers, the operation will actually be integer division, ie. divide and forget the remainder:
a = m*b + r;
So, in the case of 5:
5 = 2*2 + 1;
So the return of the 5/2 operation is 2, the +1 remainder is discarded.Ever seen a dog chase its tail? Now that's an infinite loop.

If you divide n by two the first 'half' contains n/2 (integer division) elements so the other 'half' (those quotes again) contains nn/2 elements.
kind regards,

@OP Write a program to demonstrate the problem.

problem in the half of odd integer
thanks for your help but please consider n=5 , I want to sum all 5 integers together but here will sum just those 4 first integers.
A{1,4,6,8,9}
BinarySum(A,0,2)+BinarySum(A,2,2) > So this statement will return 19 not 28 !!!
