The Heapsort algorithm is based on the
heap data structure.
The algorithm works by:
Given the array [73, 57, 0, 47, 8, 9], first turn it into a
Max-Heap, and then into a sorted array in ascending order,
using the Heapsort algorithm.
You have to show the array content of the heap, as well as a tree representation(**) of the heap, at each step(*).
(*) you may consider one step of the Heapsort algorithm to be one call of the percDown() function as from the Heapsort algorithm implementation presented in textbook section 7.5, figures 7.8.
Alternatively, you may consider one step of the Heapsort algorithm to be one call of the removeMax() function as from the Heapsort heapify() implementation at Lecture 10.
Hope this resolves your doubt.
