What are they?
So, what is a flowchart?
Flowcharts are a set of instructions which can be followed to complete a task.
A flowchart is an easy way to explain to someone on how to do something. For instance:-
If you wanted to make a cup of tea and didn't know how to someone could make you a flowchart on how to make a cup of tea with the use of a flowchart. See photo 1.
As well as being used for instructions, flowcharts can be used to solve basic problems by following a step to step guide which will help narrow down what is the possible problem and a way to fix it. See photo 2.
What Is A Computer System?
Where would I find a Computer System?
- Traffic Light
These may seem very unusual to you to be Computer Systems but they are. For instance your Alarm clock will have a set of instructions in it which tell it when and when not to set off and these instructions are set by you into a Computer System.
