Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Analysis of algorithms is the determination of the amount of resources necessary to execute them. Most algorithms are designed to work with inputs of arbitrary length. Usually, the efficiency or running time of an algorithm is stated as a function relating the input length to the number of steps  or storage locations . 

Algorithm analysis is an important part of a broader computational complexity theory, which provides theoretical estimates for the resources needed by any algorithm which solves a given computational problem. These estimates provide an insight into reasonable directions of search for efficient algorithms.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
