    Will explain later when i do the answers... well, my answers anyway.... ah feck it!

    ALU Arithmetric Logical Unit - thats the part of the processor that does maths and logical operations like adding, division, subtracting (mathematical part) and "AND" "IF", "ELSE", "XOR" (logical part)...

    the easist way for me to relate to this was XLS (Excel) all of the above are in Excel and Programming

    The Arithmetic Logic Unit carries out as the name suggests Arithmetic and Logical operations on the data made available to it.

    Basic Arithmetic functions which an ALU can carry out are an addition and subtraction. More powerful CPU's can support additional mathematical operations like multiplication and division.

    THe logical operation which it can carry out.. greater than, equal to, less than ....the comparision between two numbers.

    So basically what the cheekmaster said :oops:
