Algorithm question: why does the sign of m matter, but not the sign of n?
Algorithm:
1Read the positive integers m and n
2 Replace m by m1 and n by n+1
3 If n>0, go to step 2. Otherwise, write n.
Or is my book incorrect?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont know what was the subject for writing this algorithm... but actually the parameter "m" has not any role ( does nothing ) this algorithm has bugs too. it works for n<0 ; and will repeat ( n < n+1) until n>0 but if n already be greater then 0 ( when we enter it ) then this is an infinite loop. so if you think that there is some other points, let's discuss. :)
