I’m having a hard time understanding where connections should be used. Are they only to be used when condensing multiple streams of arrows/flows into a single arrow?
Also, how many equations should I include in a flowchart? Do I need to include a separate equation that computes each specific output variable?
Your flowchart should include as many equations and calculations as necessary to complete the problem.
From the textbook “Connector symbols should be used when multiple arrowheads need to come together. Only one arrow should leave a connector symbol.” This is because only one arrowhead can enter an input, process, decision, or output box.
