how you would compute/denote the time complexity of two loops based on different variables?
I understand how to compute the time complexity for a simple loop
one loop occurs N times - time complexity O(N)
the other loop occurs M - time complexity 0(M)
M- happens to be a unknown function of N
would the time complexity O(MN)?
but In big O notation you are to drop all excess variables
in which case time complexity would be O(N)?
or neither? please help
