15.  DATA STRUCTURES AND DATA REPRESENTATION 

* Data Structures and Data Representation are in a database, operation, and file. 

* Data Structure and Data Representation -- The structure of relationship among files in a database and among data items within 

   each file. -- Any data representation and its associated operations. -- An integer or floating point number stored on the computer 

   is a simple data structure. * Algorithm—is a method or a process followed to solve a problem. 

* Algorithm Analysis—There are 5 steps: 

    1. An algorithm must be correct. 

    2. An algorithm is composed of a series of concrete steps. 

    3. There can be no ambiguity as to which step will be performed next. 

    4. An algorithm must be composed of a finite number of step. 

    5. An algorithm must terminate. 6. 

16.  FILE SYSTEMS 

* File Systems, File Structures, or File Organizations are in database, in computer, or on peripheral storage devices. 

* File Organizations: There are 3 methods: 

    1. Sequential File Organization—Records are organized in a particular order. 

    2. Direct File Organization—Records are not organized in any special order. 

    3. Indexed File Organization—Records are organized sequentially but indexes are built into the file to allow a record to be 

        accessed either sequentially or directly.
