Question 8: Growth function undetermined?
 
On question 8, the growth function m_H(N) seems to depend on the choice of q for any q<=N. Then m_H(N) is not determined by N solely? How to understand this situation?

Thanks.

The value of q does not change with N. Fix a value for q and try to derive a formula for the growth function given that q. The formula will likely depend on the value that you fixed q at, right? That dependency is what the problem is asking about.

I have formula of m(N) as:

But not sure how to reduce to something tractable... Any suggestions please? Thanks.
