I am currently working on an algorithm and i am quite confused.
The algoritm is:
Put q = 19
1. For i=1 to 3
If the ith element of the list is a letter then
If the letter’s position in the alphabet is an odd number then
q = q+ 4
If the ith element is numeral n then
q = q + n.
2. Return q.
I have AB56 for the category number(the list). What I did was that I used a table with 3 columns. i, CatNumber and d. But I am still confused how to fill the table.
by following the algorithm. Should I have an additional q column in the table?
