    Nothing because you use integer dev.

    Assume there are N elements.
    if N is odd, usually take (N-1)/2 as the first half and the left as the second half.
    It’s not necessary to have two sublists with the same length.

    Does anyone know what happens if the list is odd when doing a divide and conquer algorithm?

    @jerricogomez its not a space error..its the indentation of subsequent blocks of code that python forces u to use…to get used to it use good text editors as VIM etc..and google around about vim’s python feature…

    These videos make programming far more interesting and easy to understand than anything else I’ve tried to learn from. Thank you, MIT.

    the true is that i like the lecture but python is not a good language to program it has space error, if you type a code and that code is not organize it will give you a error if someone know a better way to deal with python`s space let me know please
