1. How does the program repeat a set of steps over again?
A program can repeat a set of steps over again using a loop structure or also known as a repetition
structure. This kind of structure allows the programmer to run one or more than one lines of code
What is Boolean logic(100 words minimum)
With computers there is no grey area, and by that I mean everything either is or is not. There is no middle
ground or grey area where there are possibilities between the vast sides of yes and no true or false. Like
Modular programming is best used when there is large or complex task at hand. The use of modules in
modular programming can tackle these challenges and easily break them down into smaller parts and
solve the problem more efficiently.
Groups are brok
Drop through logic simply is another word to describe the series of testing one value to the other. The
drop through aspect of this logic is value the continuing to be tested and moved along until it falls
within a range that matches its value. The moment
Explain Source Code (50 words Minimum)
Source code is the programming statements that are created by the programmer in text editors or visual
programming tools and saved in a file. Although the computer cannot understand the source code before
An algorithm is a well-defined procedure that allows a computer to solve a problem. an algorithm can also
be described as a sequence of instructions that are followed chronologically. As long as the instructions
never change the output never will as
1Count Controlled : loop that continues until a specified number or Boolean condition is reached
and the program is terminated.
Condition Controlled: condition that is set and coded into the program which when the program
recognizes that condition as true

In chapter 2 we talked about what a programming language was. Programming languages use
different methods to represent algorithms and to turn those into binary for computers to understand.
There are two main types of
In chapter 5, we were introduced to the use of decisions and control structures. So far we have
been using sequence structures. Sequence structures perform tasks and then tell the program to move
on to the next task,
Understanding the problem statement is key in making sure that we can solve the problem. There are
steps that have to be taken during this process. Asking several questions from the client like What is the
program going to be us

What is a programming language? A Programming language is used to write instructions for the
computer. Programming languages are usually divided into two elements: syntax and semantics. A
programming language is the same
Breaking a problem program down by Top-down design is to first divide the work that a program
will perform into a small number of groups. Then each group of tasks is divided into individual tasks.
These tasks are then broken dow
Basically the difference between a function and a procedure is that the function must return a
value. A procedure has the option to either return a value or not. Functions can have only input
parameters for it whereas Procedures can have

A control structure is a block of programming that evaluates variables and chooses a direction in
which to go based on given parameters. The term flow control details the direction the program takes

How does the program resolve decisions, if one decision is made only as a result of another decision?
This would be called Dual Alternative Decision Structure if/then/else. Executes one group of statements if its
How does the program repeat a set of steps over again? By using a loop structure. The loop structure allows you
to run one or more lines of code over and over again. Which will allow the program to repetitively perform a set of
actions. The program will r
What loops are available to programmers?
For Flowcharts the condition-controlled loop structure and for Pseudocode and Visual basic uses a countcontrolled loop structure. Examples of condition-controlled loop structure and count-controlled loop structure:
How can a program get blocks of data instead of just variables it uses immediately?
Structured data types are collections of individual data items of the same or different data types. A program will put the data in a more of a
squeezed together form (bloc
If data is known for arrays, how do we put it in an array without asking for user input?
In order to declare array without specified size you can use a string. In certain situations, you can declare an array
without putting a number in the brackets. You c
In chapter 5, we were introduced to the use of drop-through logic, nested decision structures, and
hierarchies with primary decisions. Drop-through logic is utilized as a part of programming when you have
