Hardware refers to the machinery in a computer system (such as the monitor, keyboard, and

Programmers translate the solutions or tasks into a language the computer can understand.
As we write programs, we must keep in mind that the computer will only do what we instruct
it to do. Because of this, we must be very careful and thorough with our instructions.
