    How much time does the following algorithm require as a function of n?
    Express your answer in theta notation in the simplest form. Consider each individual instruction (including loop control) as elementary.

    l = 0
    for i = 1 to n
    for j = 1 to n^2
    for k = 1 to n^3
    l = l + 1
