need to write a sentence formally

Postby mkhmkh » Tue Dec 17, 2013 3:05 pm

Hi friends...

I need help on writing a formal sentence for a journal paper. the very simple sentence is this:

"Algorithm A reached the optimal solution in 5 cases, algorithm B reached the optimal solution in 4 cases and both of the algorithms reached the optimal solution in 2 cases."

How can I write this sentence in a better way, to be shorter and more beautiful?

Thanks alot...

Not much wrong as it is. I would just use semi-colons and remove "of the":

Algorithm A reached the optimal solution in 5 cases; algorithm B reached the optimal solution in 4 cases; and both algorithms reached the optimal solution in 2 cases.
