## Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

"In elementary algebra, a quadratic equation (from the Latin quadratus for "square") is any equation having the form
ax^2+bx+c=0
where x represents an unknown, and a, b, and c are constants with a not equal to 0. If a = 0, then the equation is linear, not quadratic. The constants a, b, and c are called, respectively, the quadratic coefficient, the linear coefficient and the constant or free term.
Because the quadratic equation involves only one unknown, it is called "univariate". The quadratic equation only contains powers of x that are non-negative integers, and therefore it is a polynomial equation, and in particular it is a second degree polynomial equation since the greatest power is two.
Quadratic equations can be solved by a process known in American English as factoring and in other varieties of English as factorising, by completing the square, by using the quadratic formula, or by graphing." [Quadratic equation. Wikipedia]
The flowchart example "Solving quadratic equation algorithm" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Mathematics solution from the Science and Education area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

## IDEF0 standard with ConceptDraw PRO

The activity of any organization is more or less branchy network of processes. The description of these processes is a hard technical task which requires definite methodology and standards.
According to the IDEF0 standard any process can be described in the form of a block (Activity Box) which has inputs and outputs. The process consists in transformation of inputs into outputs under the influence of the management and in the presence of necessary resources. Outputs of the given process later on can be either inputs for the next process or resources, or management means.

"In mathematics, the Euclidean algorithm, or Euclid's algorithm, is a method for computing the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two (usually positive) integers, also known as the greatest common factor (GCF) or highest common factor (HCF). ...
The GCD of two positive integers is the largest integer that divides both of them without leaving a remainder (the GCD of two integers in general is defined in a more subtle way).
In its simplest form, Euclid's algorithm starts with a pair of positive integers, and forms a new pair that consists of the smaller number and the difference between the larger and smaller numbers. The process repeats until the numbers in the pair are equal. That number then is the greatest common divisor of the original pair of integers.
The main principle is that the GCD does not change if the smaller number is subtracted from the larger number. ... Since the larger of the two numbers is reduced, repeating this process gives successively smaller numbers, so this repetition will necessarily stop sooner or later - when the numbers are equal (if the process is attempted once more, one of the numbers will become 0)." [Euclidean algorithm. Wikipedia]
The flowchart example "Euclidean algorithm" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Mathematics solution from the Science and Education area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

## Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) with ConceptDraw PRO

Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) serves for detailed description of structures and databases. An ERD represents a diagram made up mainly of rectangular blocks (for entities, or data) linked with relationships. The links between the blocks describe relations between these entities. There are three types of relationships: one-to-one,
one-to-many, many-to-many.
Draw Entity-Relationship Diagrams (ERD) easily with ConceptDraw extended with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution from the Software Development Area. Use ERD software to create ER diagram.

## How to Create a Custom Library

Why do people use custom clipart to create their mind maps? First, this allows you to create your author's style. Making a mind map is a creative work, and each mind map depicts the personality of its author. More, the custom clipart is needed if your mind map often contains the same set of custom images that are not supplied with standard software package. ConceptDraw MINDMAP allows you to create a custom clip art library to increase the visual capacity of your mind maps. You can even deploy them inside ConceptDraw MINDMAP so that you can use them through standard interface tools.
