ISBN 9780073383095 # a.) Define the term algorithm. b.) What are the different ways to describe algorithms? c.) What is the difference between an algorithm for solving a problem and a computer program that solve this problem?

a) An algorithm is a finite set of set of rules or instructions that are used to solve a problem or perform a computations.

b) Computer language, pseudocode

c) An algorithm gives a finite set of instruction to solve a problem, while a computer program will use one or more algorithms to solve the problem but will thus not necessarily use the same algorithm each time this problem is solved.

## (a)Step 1: Define the term algorithm

An algorithm is a finite set of rules or instructions that are used to solve a problem or perform a computation.

## (b)Step 2: Different ways to describe algorithms

An algorithm can be described using a computer language or using pseudocode.

## (c)Step 3: Difference between an algorithm for solving a problem and a computer program that solve this problem

An algorithm gives a finite set of instructions to solve a problem, while a computer program will use one or more algorithms to solve the problem but will thus not necessarily use the same algorithm each time this problem is solved. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
