Fixed Loop Constructs

In most programs we need the ability to repeat lines of code.

This saves time, device resources and makes programming more efficient.

Watch this video - it shows that this can be in a variety of different ways, but one of the most common is a fixed loop.

  • Fixed Loops are used when we have a set number of times that we want some lines of code to repeat.
  • Fixed loops work when we know how many times something needs to happen, for example if a program had to take in a test score for each of the 4 terms at school to work out a total:

repeat 4 times

ask “what was your termly score”

total = total + answer

end repeat
