What is Time Complexity of algorithms?

Time complexity is the amount of time taken by an algorithm to run, as a function of the length of the input. Here, the length of input indicates the number of operations to be performed by the algorithm.

Big O Notation

It is used to express the upper limit of an algorithm’s running time, or we can also say that it tells us the maximum time an algorithm will take to execute completely. It is also used to determine the worst-case scenario of an algorithm.
