The Meaning of an Algorithm

:

An algorithm is a basic tool which is used to express the solution for a given problemsystematically in the form of instructions. This solution is called logic. It takes a set of inputvalues and produces the desired output.

An algorithm is defined as unambiguous, step by step procedure (instructions) to solve agiven problem in finite number of steps by accepting a set of inputs and producing the desiredoutput. After producing the result, the algorithm should terminate. Usually, Algorithm arewritten in simple English like statements along with simple mathematical expressions.
Characteristics of an Algorithm:

Input:
It may accept a zero or more inputs.

Output:
It should produce at least one output(result).

Definiteness:
Each instruction must be clear , well-defined and precise. There should not beany ambiguity.

Finiteness:
It shoild be a sequence of finite instructions. That is, it should end after a fixedtime. It should not enter into an infinite loop.

Effectiveness:
This means that operations must be simple and are carried out in a finite timeat one or more levels of complexity. It should be effective whenever traced manually for theresults.

The Meaning of Flowchart :

A flowchart is a pictorial representation of an algorithm. That is flowchart consists of sequence of instructions that are carried out in an algorithm. All the steps are drawn form of different shapes of boxes, circle and connecting arrows. Flowcharts are mainly used to helpprogrammer to understand the logic of the program.

The various types of geometric shapes, arrows and symbols used while drawing the flowchartare called flowchart symbols. The symbols used and the meaning associated with eachsymbol are shown below.
Symbols used Meaning associated with symbolsStart or end of the flow chart(program)Computational steps (used while assigning andcalculating Some results )Input or output operationDecision making and branchingConnectorPredefined computation or process (used with functionsare used)Repetition or a loop which is normally used to execute agroup of instructions for a specifies number of timesFlow of controlEntry to execute statements parallelyStop to execute statements parallely
