          A computer is a machine or an electronic device that can solve problems by accepting data, performing certain operations on that data (processing) and presenting the results of those operations (Information) Basic characteristics that distinguish a computer from other information processing devices:-
          1. A computer is electronic- That is, all it processing operations are carried out with electrical signals
          2. A computer can store information for future reference. This is done on temporary basis with memory circuits and permanently with storage devices such as magnetic disks and tape.
          3. A computer is programmable – unlike other devices built to perform a single function, a computer can be instructed or programmed to perform a variety of tasks.

            Converting the data (raw facts) into information (Organized, usable form) is called data processing.

            Data get into the system by means of an input device.e.g keyboard then the computer performs the necessary calculations or manipulations on the data and finally the organized information is displayed by an output device e.g. a monitor.

            Although computers have many applications, they can perform only three basic tasks.
            1. Arithmetic functions on numeric data (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing)
            2. Test relationships between data items (by comparing values)
