5 Applications Gives a practical idea of use in real-life Complusory
6 Questions Enhances interactivity and scope to test knowledge Complusory
7 Discussion Enables all OpenGenus members to stay connected Default
8 Audio Helps reliefs the eye and helps imagination Optional

Following is a guide on the structure of your article (Note: it is not fixed so you can customize it accordingly):

<!-- heading -->

<div class="table_of_contents">
    <div href="#firstheading" class="in_page_link">firstheading</div>
    <div href="#secondheading" class="in_page_link">secondheading</div>
    <div href="#thirdheading" class="in_page_link">thirdheading</div>
    <div href="#fourthheading" class="in_page_link">fourthheading</div>
</div>

<div id="algorithm"></div>



### Pseudocode


### Complexity

* Worst case time complexity: <code class="yellow">**&Theta;(<>)**</code> 
* Average case time complexity: <code class="yellow">**&Theta;(<>)**</code> 
* Best case time complexity: <code class="yellow">**&Theta;(<>)**</code>
* Space complexity: <code class="yellow">**&Theta;(<>)**</code>

### Implementations

For single code use markdown as follows:

    ```cpp
    code ...
    ```

For multiple tabs for multiple implementations, use HTML as follows:

<ul class="tabs">
  <li class="active" rel="tab1">C</li>
  <li class="" rel="tab2">C++</li>
</ul>

<div class="tab_container">
   <h3 class="d_active tab_drawer_heading" rel="tab1">C</h3>
   <div id="tab1" class="tab_content">
   <pre><code class="language-c">

         <!-- Write the code 
         
              There should not be any empty lines in the code
              Convert all "<" and ">" characters to "&lt;" and "&gt;" respectively
              
              The class "language-c" comes from the guide of highlight.js library
              For Java, it is "language-java";
              for C++, it is "language-cpp" and others
         -->

   </code></pre>
   </div>
   <!-- tab 1 C code -->
   
   <h3 class="d_active tab_drawer_heading" rel="tab2">C++</h3>
   <div id="tab2" class="tab_content">
   <pre><code class="language-ppc">
   
       <!--
       
           This is to demonstrate adding a second code
           
       -->
   </code></pre>
   </div>
   <!-- tab 2 C++ code -->

</div>

### Applications

<!-- Write about applications -->

<!-- Note: Discussion tab will appear only when published -->

Add a Question

To do so, use the following format:

<div class="container"style="width:100%;">
<h2>Question</h2>
<h4>the question text</h4>
<h6 id="question_message" class="question_message"></h6>
<section class="questionlist">
<div class="correct_option">option1</div>
<div class="wrong_option">option2</div>
<div class="wrong_option">option3</div>
<div class="wrong_option">option4</div>
</section>
<div class="Answer_explanation">
