Di rections
In this booklet, a number of problems are stated

In the form of flow charts,

A flow chart is simply a "mad map" by which you must find your way from one "town" 10 the next, and obey every instruction you come to, Always follow the "road" downward, or to the righ~, unless an arrow indicates a different direction or unless an instruction requires you to do otherwise, When you come to a fork in the "road" there will be a question for you to answer. Match your answer with the "signposts" on the branches leading out of the fork, and you will know which way to go. When you are told to put a number into a box, it is understood that whatever number was previously in that box has just been erased. All numbers used in this test are to be integers (no fractions). Good Luck!
