    The basic idea of my algorithm is binary search. Suppose A(x,k) is the algorithm that solves the decision version of P with instance x and size k. We define the cost function with instance x and size n as follows:

    int CostOfP(x, n)
    // The cost of instance x is between 1 and n^4
    start = 1;
