## Define a Algorithm and Flowchart

Algorithm

Q) Define the algorithm. what are the characteristics of the algorithm?

• An algorithm is a well-defined finite set of instructions that accomplishes a particular task, which may or may not take input and produce some value as output.

#### Following are the characteristics of the algorithm

• Input Every algorithm should accept some data as input.
• Output Every algorithm should produce output.
• Finiteness Algorithm must terminate after a finite number of steps.
• Definiteness Each instruction should be clear & unambiguous.
• Correctness For every input instance, it must generate the correct output.

## Flowchart

### Define a flowchart.

#### Give the symbols used in the flowchart.

• A flowchart is the pictorial or symbolic representation of an algorithm.
• It shows the logic of the algorithm and the flow of control. it uses symbols to represent specific actions and arrows to indicate the flow of control.
