# Algorithm

An **Algoritm** (also spelled Algorerythm) was an idea invented by Al Gore, the who MADE TEH INTARWEBZ, where you stick a number into an equation and you get a number out. Maybe a random number. Maybe something that makes you happy. IDK

## Examples[edit | edit source]

Here is an example of ~~AL GORE RULEZ~~ an algorithm:

This example had more than one input. Limitations of this algorithm are:

- Your shoe size must be greater than negative FORE

Here is a simplier example:

Where x is your input. This algorithm adds to x.

## I'llgowithems in Programming (See wat I did thar)[edit | edit source]

Programmers use algorithms frequently. Here is an example of a C++ program that uses an algorithm to estimate the number of spitballs in a given middleschool classroom:

#include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int classCode, substState, hour, min; // Get user input. cout << endl << "Enter classCode: "; // College class, like 098 is actually a high school course cin >> classCode; cout << endl << "Enter subtitute teacher state: "; // 0 or 1, false or true... cin >> substState; cout << endl << "Enter hour (military time): "; // Military to avoid loop-around cin >> hour; cout << endl << "Enter minutes: "; // It DOES matter cin >> min; if (hour == 0 && min == 0) { cout << endl << endl << "Number of spitballs undefined. << endl << endl; } else { cout << endl << endl << "Average number of spitballs in the room is: " << ((classCode + (substState * 5)) / (hour + (0.52 * min))) << endl << endl; } system("pause"); return 0; }

Note that the number of spitballs at 0:00 in military time is undefined. This is because if you divide by zero, your paper—or in this case your computer—WILL BURST INTO FLAMES!!1

Famous algorithms include the answer to life, the universe, and everything, which outputs 42.
