An algorithm (pronounced AL-go-rith-um) is a procedure or formula for solving a problem. The word derives from the name of the mathematician, Mohammed ibn-Musa al-Khwarizmi, who was part of the royal court in Baghdad and who lived from about 780 to 850. An algorithm is a sequence of unambiguous instructions for solving a problem, i.e., for obtaining a required output for any legitimate input in a finite amount of time. Algorithm can be defined as an outline of the essence of procedure represented in step by step instructional manner. When you implement this algorithm using any programming language, then it is said to be a program. A certain problem can be solved using many different algorithms.
