Which of the following is not true in the function $f(n)=2^{n-4}$?

  1. $f(n)$=Θ($2^{n+3}$)
  2. $f(n)$=Ω($n^{1000}$)
  3. $f(n)$=Ο($2^{n-10}$)
  4. $f(n)$=$None$

$A. f(n)$= Θ($2^{n+3}$)

$f(n) = 2^{n-4} =\Large \frac{2^n}{2^4}$

let $g(n) = 2^{n+3} = 2^{n}.2^3$

$\large \frac{f(n)}{g(n)} = \frac{1}{2^3.2^4}$

this tells us $f(n)$= Θ($2^{n+3}$) is true


$B.$ $f(n)$=Ω($n^{1000}$) 

$f(n)$ is exponential and $n^{1000}$ is polynomial so  $f(n)$=Ω($n^{1000}$)  is true


C. $f(n)$=Ο($2^{n-10}$) is also true just like A

So none of them are false

For the first one, we have to show that $2^{n-4} \leq c \times 2^{n-10}$ for all $n \geq n_0$.

This is true for any $c \geq 2^6$ as we get by solving the inequality.

For the second one, we have to prove that $f(n) \geq c \times g(n)$ for all $n \geq n_0$
$\implies 2^{n-4} \geq c \times n^{1000}$.

This is true for all $n_0$ when $n - 1000 \log n > 4$. You can get this inequality by doing using the limit definition while comparing terms.

For the third, we have to show $c_1 \times 2^{n-3} \leq 2^{n-4} \leq c_2 \times 2^{n+3}$.

You can find $c_1, c_2$ according to this condition.

Hence, all three are true.
