This algorithm is simple , and it's easy to see that it would work on any group of
people . Since you go through the entire line , every person is eventually asked
his or her birthday . When you reach the oldest person , his or her birthday will be
For example , if there are 100 people in line and it takes 5 seconds to compare
birthdays , completing Algorithm 2 will require 5 * [ log2 ( 100 ) = 5 * 7 = 35
seconds . If there are 200 people in line , then completing Algorithm 2 will require
Performance measures the speed at which a particular algorithm ( or program
designed to carry out that algorithm ) accomplishes its task . Performance may be
characterized by the number of steps involved or the time it takes to complete the
