**Write an algorithm and draw a corresponding flowchart to print the sum of all integers starting from 2 to the given positive integer x where x >= 2. 10m Dec2006**

An **algorithm **is a finite set of steps defining the solution of a particular problem. An algorithm is expressed in pseudo code – something resembling C language or Pascal, but with some statements in English rather than within the programming language

- A sequential solution of any program that written in human language, called algorithm.
- Algorithm is first step of the solution process, after the analysis of problem, programmers write the algorithm of that problem.

**Pseudo code: **

- Initialize I to zero , Sum to zero
- Input a Number
- While I is Less than equal to Number
- itoa(I,SNUM,10)
- If SNUM[0] equal to ‘2’
- SUM=SUM+I
- Increment I
- Print SUM
- Stop

**Detailed Algorithm:**

Step 1: Input NUM

Step 2: I = 0 , SUM =0

Step 3: While ( I<= NUM)

itoa(I,SNUM,10)

If ( SSNUM[0] == ‘2’)[I] == S[J] )

SUM=SUM+I

I++

Step 6: Print SUM

Step 7: End
