lving the Problem Solving the Problem In order to make a program that is CORRECT, we need to solve the problem properly…a general approach 5 Basic Steps mmarize the problem clearly and concisely 1. Summarize the problem clearly and concisely 2. List and Describe inputs and output goals 3. Understand the steps and calculations to convert your inputs to the desired outputs 4. Develop a computer program to complete these lculations calculations 5. Test the solution with sample data (a sample calculation)
