Computational Time for Forward Substitution

In the previous blog, we found the computatational time for back substitution. This is a blog that will show you how we can find the approximate time it takes to conduct forward substitution, while solving simultaneous linear equations. The blog assumes a AMD-K7 2.0GHz chip that uses 4 clock cycles for addition, subtraction and multiplication, while 16 clock cycles for division. Note that we are making reasonable approximations in this blog. Our main motto is to see what the computational time is proportional to – does the computational time double or quadruple if the number of equations is doubled.
