Algorithms

  1. 1. Algorithms Sheet 2 Identifying Control Structures
  2. 2. 1. Match the terms sequence , binary selection , multiway selection and iteration to the descriptions that follow: <ul><li>a decision taken in an algorithm which can go either of two ways </li></ul><ul><li>binary selection </li></ul><ul><li>(b) decision taken in an algorithm which allows more than two choices </li></ul><ul><li>multiway selection </li></ul>decision two decision more than two
  3. 3. 1. Match the terms sequence , binary selection , multiway selection and iteration to the descriptions that follow: <ul><li>a decision taken in the processing done by an ATM to either withdraw, deposit or check account balance, depending on the key pressed </li></ul><ul><li>multiway selection </li></ul><ul><li>(d) a loop in a process which repeats the same instructions a number of times </li></ul><ul><li>iteration </li></ul>decision more than two repeats
  4. 4. 1. Match the terms sequence , binary selection , multiway selection and iteration to the descriptions that follow: <ul><li>(e) a part of a program where we always add 1 to a counter and then print </li></ul><ul><li>sequence </li></ul><ul><li>(f) a portion of a program that is done over and over again, and only stops when the count reaches zero </li></ul><ul><li>iteration </li></ul>always over and over again
  5. 5. 2. Identify two of the control structures used in each of the following algorithms <ul><li>(a) </li></ul><ul><li>Count = 0 </li></ul><ul><li>REPEAT </li></ul><ul><li>DoTheLoop </li></ul><ul><li>Add 1 to Count </li></ul><ul><li>UNTIL Count = 5 </li></ul><ul><li>sequence </li></ul><ul><li>iteration/repetition </li></ul><ul><li>sequence </li></ul>
  6. 6. 2. Identify two of the control structures used in each of the following algorithms <ul><li>(b) </li></ul><ul><li>WHILE Count <= 5 </li></ul><ul><li>Add 1 to Count </li></ul><ul><li>DoTheLoop </li></ul><ul><li>END WHILE </li></ul><ul><li>iteration/repetition </li></ul><ul><li>sequence </li></ul>
  7. 7. 2. Identify two of the control structures used in each of the following algorithms <ul><li>(c) </li></ul><ul><li>Get NextVideo </li></ul><ul><li>IF category = ‘X’ </li></ul><ul><li>THEN print ‘You cannot watch this!’ </li></ul><ul><li>ELSE DoBorrowProcess </li></ul><ul><li> Print details </li></ul><ul><li>END IF </li></ul><ul><li>sequence </li></ul><ul><li>selection (binary) </li></ul>
  8. 8. 2. Identify two of the control structures used in each of the following algorithms <ul><li>(d) </li></ul><ul><li>REPEAT </li></ul><ul><li>Enter Number </li></ul><ul><li>IF Number > highest </li></ul><ul><li>THEN set highest to Number </li></ul><ul><li>END IF </li></ul><ul><li>UNTIL no more Numbers </li></ul><ul><li>iteration/repetition </li></ul><ul><li>sequence </li></ul><ul><li>selection </li></ul>
  9. 9. 2. Identify two of the control structures used in each of the following algorithms <ul><li>(e) </li></ul><ul><li>WHILE more input </li></ul><ul><li>Select input </li></ul><ul><li>CASE 1 </li></ul><ul><li>DoWithdrawals </li></ul><ul><li>CASE 2 </li></ul><ul><li>DoDeposits </li></ul><ul><li>CASE 3 </li></ul><ul><li>DoAccountBalance </li></ul><ul><li>CASE other </li></ul><ul><li>DoErrorProcess </li></ul><ul><li>END select </li></ul><ul><li>Get input </li></ul><ul><li>END WHILE </li></ul><ul><li>iteration/repetition </li></ul><ul><li>selection (multiway) </li></ul><ul><li>sequence </li></ul>
