Input is instructions or data related to a task. Which is input by Input Devices like Keyboard, Mouse, Scanner, Light Pen etc.

Data processing

After taking the input, the computer stores the input data in the computer memory. After this follows the instructions given by the user. The computer does this work very fast.

During processing, the computer checks the input data, follows the given instructions and converts it into information. which is called the result.

Give output

After processing the data, the computer gives the result. This result is called Output. Computers take the help of Output Devices to show the results.

The most important of the output devices are the monitor or display. Above which there is an Output Show. Apart from these, Printers, Speakers are also other major Output Devices.

What have you learned?

In this post, we have given you complete information about the working of the computer. You know how computer works. Computer does its work in three phases. First, taking input, second, processing, and third, giving output. We hope that this lesson will prove useful for you.
