There’s an old story about the person who wished his computer were as easy to use as his telephone. That wish has come true, since I no longer know how to use my telephone. Bjarne Stroustrup

Algorithm Problem Description

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

Linear search is a simple search algorithm to find the items from the unsorted array. If you want to search the item in the sorted array, we can use Binary search. It searches an item in less number of comparison.

Write a program to implement linear search.

Output

          	        
          	        

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!
