Well, if you are here by googling then I assume you already know what an Algorithm is. If not (somehow) then let me tell you what it means. An algorithm is a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer. So, as per Computer Science context, to make a computer do anything, you have to write a computer program. To write a computer program, you have to tell the computer, step by step, exactly what you want it to do.
