We programmer's like it when we can make our code linear scaling. Basically, that mean that for N inputs, it costs something like k*N + h time to execute. Or if you are a computer nerd it is O(N) (See big-oh notation). Sometimes O(NlogN) is close enough...

Most of the time, things aren't linear scaling, or else we are running around trying to make them so.
