Questions & Answers

Q: What is the difference between algorithms and programs?

Algorithms are step-by-step procedures for solving computational problems, while programs are implementations of those procedures designed for specific hardware and operating systems. Algorithms are written during the design phase, while programs are written during the implementation phase.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Algorithms are step-by-step procedures for solving computational problems, while programs establish procedures for solving a problem.

  • The difference between algorithms and programs lies in their purpose and the time they are written - algorithms are written during the design phase, while programs are written during the implementation phase.

  • Algorithms are hardware and software independent, while programs are dependent on the hardware and operating system.
