# Trying Work Program Passes Several Arrays Quick Sort Aqlgorithm C Count Number Comparison Q26356068

am trying to work on a program that passes several arrays to aquick sort aqlgorithm. in C++. and it will count number ofcomparisons and number of memory acesses. When I pass in thearuments :

{“Sample01″:[405671699,-1331214237,1253806977,-1731382277,1366371255,580460112,1558890951,-1776117163,-381653001,-2082221313],”Sample02″:[-1131041625,1134553371,-1329801767,2119832120,-1070564737,-1097067266,2091875263,-1800615267,1963499175,1208795062],”Sample03”:[-671509013,1183270444,-1809106133,2083837920,-533105388,373812996,1124237175,-869357156,1976027802,-375978812],

I get the numbers 146 146 146 and 99 99 99 when I am supposed toget 23 23 23 and 182 182 182 for number of memory acesses. so I amovercounting somewhere. can someone help me with this code?
