Consider the following Python definition of a recursive function:...

Consider the following Python definition of a recursive function: the function takes two non-negative integers x and y as arguments. def mult(x, y): if y == 0: return 0 z = y // 2 p = mult(2*x, z) if y % 2 == 1: # y is odd return y + p return p Now: - use induction on the value of y to show that the function correctly computes the product of x and y. - show that the function makes only ⌈log2 y⌉ recursive calls.
