Q. What is a while loop?
A. A while loop is an iteration structure that repeats a set of instructions over and over again as long as a given condition is true. The repetition stops when the given condition is false.
Example application: Coach to team – “Run around this field if you can (are not tired or injured) and keep running till you cannot do so anymore (are tired or injured).”
