Only two of the three things that happen in computer programming are in the previous table, which are input and output, but processing is not included. This paper will explain not only the processing within the table, but it will also explain the following: What the computer components (CPU, memory, and storage) are and what they do. The things that are needed to create the programs that would allow the previous table to be able to have input/output process, and how the data in the previous table can be processed into information as well as, graphical versus mathematical or statistical output. First, the computer components that are quite important to any program in a computer are: CPU, memory and storage. “The central processing unit (also called the processor or CPU) is the brain of the computer. It receives the program instructions, performs the arithmetic and

In a PC, memory resides on a series of chips either plugged directly into the motherboard or into one or more smaller
