positive integers whether there are two distinct terms of the sequence that have as sum a third term. The

algorithm should loop through all triples of terms of the sequence, checking whether the sum of the first two

terms equals the third.

Give a big-O estimate for the complexity of the brute-force algorithm from part (a).

Devise a more efficient algorithm for solving the problem that first sorts the input sequence and then checks

for each pair of terms whether their sum is in the sequence.

Give a big-O estimate for the complexity of this algorithm. Is it more efficient than the brute-force

algorithm?
