Hello
This my first programming class and I noticed that someone posted the following Simply Array Process Pseudocode which is in regard to:
Input a list of employee names and salaries, and determine the mean (average) salary as well as the number of salaries above and below the mean.
My question is what  in the first line of the Pseudocode stands for? please I need help

``````Declare Names, Salaries
Set Sum = 0
Set Count1 = 0
Set K = 1
Write “Enter Employees Name and Salary.”
Write “Enter *,0 when done.”
Input Name, Salary
While Salary <> “0”
Set Count1 = Count1 + 1
Set Sum = Sum + Salary
Write “Enter another Employee Name and Salary (enter *,0 when done)”
Input Name, Salary
End While
Set Average = Sum / Count1
Set Count2 = 0
Set Count3 = 0
For K = 1 Step 1 to Count1
If Salary[K] > Average Then
Set Count2 = Count2 + 1
End If
If Salary[K] < Average Then
Set Count3 = Count3 + 1
End If
End For
Write “The Average Salary is: \$”, Average
Write “The number of Salaries Above the Average Salary is:”, Count2
Write “The number of Salaries Below the Average Salary is:”, Count3
``````

It's the size of an array.
