Algorithm is pronounced as “Al-go-rith-um” is a specific procedure to solve the problem. An algorithm is a finite number of steps which are used to accomplish a particular task.
An algorithm makes the work more effective and efficient. It guides the developers or programmers to manage the work in a sensible way. The fixed and defined steps save the time.


Different algorithms are written to develop computer programs and they are altered according to user’s requirements to perform tasks in a sensible way.

Programming languages are primarily intended for expressing algorithms in a form that can be executed by a computer, but are often used as a way to define or document algorithms.

For example Brents algorithm finds cycles in iterations using only two iterations and Floyds cycle-finding algorithm finds cycles in iterations.
