### Algorithm

One of the earliest-known entries of the word "algorithm" in a dictionary can be found in Samuel Johnson's Dictionary of the English Language from 1785.

The entry on page 130 reads (approximately): algorithm: Arabic words, which are used to imply the six operations of arithmetic, or the science of numbers.

Today, "algorithm" is defined as:

- A well-defined procedure to solve a problem.

- A clearly specified set of simple instructions to be followed to solve a problem.

- A finite, deterministic, and effective problem-solving method.

- An explicit, precise, unambiguous, mechanically-executable sequence of elementary instructions.

- A sequence of computational steps that transform input into output.

- A set of rules that precisely defines a sequence of operations.

- A precisely defined set of mathematical or logical operations for the performance of a particular task.

- A step-by-step process to efficiently reach the desired goal.
