Algorithm Problem Description

Linear search is a method to find a particular item in an array. It compares each item with search item until it finds. The linear search performs on non-sorted items in the array.

Linear search is a simple search algorithm to find the items from a unsorted array. If the array sorted, the developer can use Binary search which search the item in less number of comparison.

Write a program to implement linear search.


List of items in the array: [12, 55, 45, 11, 23, 20, 17, 24, 9]
Search '12' in the array using linear search
Found in 1 Position!
