In our earlier example of making change, the subtraction steps involved manipulating symbols used to represent numbers and money. In carrying out the instructions of any algorithm, a computing agent manipulates information. The computing agent starts with some given information (known as input), transforms this information according to well-defined rules, and produces new information, known as output. It is important to recognize that the algorithms that describe information processing can also be represented as information.
