## Study Notes

### Flowcharts in Computer Programming

• The purpose of a flowchart is to visually represent the logic of a program, making it easier to understand and analyze.
• When the program logic is quite complicated, the primary concern is to ensure that the flowchart accurately represents the program's logic.

### Characteristics of a Properly Drawn Flowchart

• A properly drawn flowchart should have characteristics such as clarity, simplicity, and accuracy.

### Drawbacks of Flowcharts

• A potential drawback of flowcharts is that when alterations are required, the entire flowchart may need to be redrawn, which can be time-consuming.

### Flow of a Procedure or System

• The flow of a procedure or system usually goes from top to bottom or left to right in a flowchart.

### Effective Use of Flowcharts

• A key requirement for using a flowchart effectively is to ensure that it accurately represents the program's logic.

### Process Symbol

• A process symbol in a flowchart should have only one flow line coming out of it.

### Algorithm

• An algorithm is a well-defined procedure that takes some input and produces a corresponding output.

### Decision Symbol

• A decision symbol in a flowchart should have only two flow lines entering it.

### Instructions in an Algorithm

• The primary characteristic of instructions in an algorithm is that they are specific and unambiguous.

### Representation of a Flowchart

• A flowchart represents the sequence of steps involved in a program or system.

### Complex Program Logic

• A potential issue when the program logic is quite complex is that it can be difficult to create a flowchart that accurately represents the logic.
