7. Example 3 Draw a flowchart for computing factorial N (N!) Where N! = 1?2?3?....N .

8. Advantages of Flowchart • Communication. • Effective analysis. • Proper documentation. • Efficient Coding. • Proper Debugging. • Efficient Program Maintenance.

9. Disadvantages of Flowchart • Complex logic. • Alterations and Modifications. • Reproduction. • The essentials of what is done can easily be lost in the technical details of how it is done.
