Size DeclaratorAppears in an array declaration and specifies the number of elements in the array
Named ConstantsSpecifies the size of an array
ElementAn individual storage location in an array
0The first subscript in an array
3, 5, 7, 1, 0Output of code: int arr[5] = { 3, 5, 7, 1, 0}; int i; for (i = 0; i <5; i++) {print(arr[i]);}

Sorting AlgorithmRearranges the values stored in an array
AscendingArray sorted from lowest to highest
DescendingArray sorted from highest to lowest

Selection SortLocates and moves the smallest value to element 0, then locates and moves the next smallest value to element 1
Insertion SortSorts the first two elements, then moves the third element to its correct position relative to the first two elements
Sequential searchThis search algorithm steps through the entire array, beginning at index 0 (subscript 0) and ending at the last index in the array. If a match is made, it returns the value and index location of the match.
Binary searchThis search algorithm repeatedly divides the portion of the array being searched in half.
Sequential searchThis search algorithm is suitable for small arrays, but not large arrays. It does not have to be sorted.
Binary searchThis algorithm requires the array’s contents to be sorted.
