- 1. Data Structures and Algorithms Processing ArraysArrays @ Often advantageous for a user to store several values for the same variable in the internal memory of the computer because it decreases processing time. @ This multiple storage means there has to be more than one memory location in the computer for each variable name. @ When more than one memory location is designated for a single variable, it is called an array.Static Arrays @ This means that once the computer is told how many locations to save, that number cannot be changed unless the instruction is changed.Processing Arrays *Property of STI Page 1 of 17
- 2. Data Structures and Algorithms Processing ArraysDynamic Arrays @ When using dynamic arrays, the programmer designates the number of array locations as a variable, which can be expanded or contracted during the execution of the solution.Base-Zero System @ Because computers are zero-based, for counting purposes, many programming languages are also zero-based. @ This means that the first array element is numbered zero and not one.Base-One System @ Base one is easier for the programmer to understand since the first element will have an index of 1.Processing Arrays *Property of STI Page 2 of 17

These arrays are calledmultidimensional arrays.Advantages : @ Facilitate an understanding of the data @ Improve the readability of algorithms @ Facilitate processingProcessing Arrays *Property of STI Page 16 of 17
- 17. Data Structures and Algorithms Processing ArraysTable Look-up Technique @ A common application for arrays is using a value to look up another value in a table. A one-dimensional array would be used if the element number can be utilized as the given value. A two- dimensional array with two columns would be used if the element number cannot be utilized. element DAYS Algorithm FLOWCHART: 1 31 1. ENTER MONTH 2.
