Doh! News Flash!
iPhone launched After iPhone announced oops? Hype/Excitement Builds The good news: Apple stock still doubled in one year... Sequence Selection Iteration All Algorithms Utilize 3 Primary Tools Sequence Selection Iteration All Algorithms Utilize 3 Primary Tools
Greatest Common Factor 1: Request a value for a 2: Request a value for b 3: if a b then assign b to c 4: if a < b then assign a to c 5: while (remainder(a, c)0 OR remainder(b, c)0) 6: subtract one from c 7: return c 8: end Sequence Selection Iteration All Algorithms Utilize 3 Primary Tools
Greatest Common Factor 1: Request a value for a 2: Request a value for b 3: if a b then assign b to c 4: if a < b then assign a to c 5: while (remainder(a, c)0 OR remainder(b, c)0) 6: subtract one from c 7: return c 8: end Commands follow in a specific linear order. Often this order is implicit. Algorithms invoke other algorithms. Sequence Selection Iteration All Algorithms Utilize 3 Primary Tools
