As I understand it that statement directs me to substitute the formula above anywhere the growth function is used in problems 1 to 3 regardless of the dependency on N actually displayed in the problem  2N and N^2 factors are to be ignored.
Am I mistaken in this interpretation? Thanks for your attention.

The formula is for the growth function
, not for the whole bound that involves the growth function among other terms.
