Graphical representation of an algorithm using standard symbols. Includes a set of various standard shaped boxes that are  interconnected by flow lines. Flow lines have arrows(direction of flow). Activities are written within boxes in English. Communicates between programmers and business persons.

Advantages Of Flowchart

Communication – Quickly provide logic, ideas and descriptions of algorithms.
Effective Analysis – Clear overview of the entire problem.
Proper Documentation
– Documents the steps followed in an algorithm.
– Helps us understand its logic in future.
Efficient Coding – More ease with comprehensive flowchart as a guide
Easy in debugging and program maintenance – Debugging and maintenance of operating program

Ex. Write an algorithm and draw flowchart for finding the sum of any two numbers.
