Computer Algorithms

Algorithms put simply are instructions specifically for computers to do a particular task. A computer with no instruction is like a person without a brain, it just wouldn't work. Computers are very fast but they lack reasoning and must be told what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. Because of this algorithms must be precise. For example, if you told your buddy to get you some snacks he may ask where the nearest store is and he would be on his way. However, a computer would need much more instruction. Instructions such as open the front door, open car door, put on seatbelt, put key in ignition, etc. Once again computer algorithms must be precise and to the point
