[Image: asd.jpg]So the question 8 said smallest, so I thing should be zero right? 0 was the smallest, and the biggest should be 0.585. Or should I choose B. 0.3 ?

Use log base 2 of 3. n^1.585 >= n. 
So case 1, because n <= n^1.585 - epsilon (big Omicron is <=). 
How much can we subtract from 1.585 and maintain big Omicron? Remember, epsilon must be greater than zero (This is stated in case 1 in the book). 
1.585 - .3 = 1.285. 
.6 would go too far. 
So the answer is 0.3, or B.
