Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program. Linus Torvalds

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!
