The value of Big-O notation is for scale ability and the value of the constant of proportionality!

P: n/a
The value of Big-O notation is for scale ability, since quite often a
an algorithm used for small N is forgotten about in a large program

It's also useful to know the constant of proportionality, for
different platforms, for code optimization issues.
