Loop-is a type of command that allows us to repeat the same sequence multiple times.
Repeat Loop-allow us to tell the computer exactly how many times we want to repeat commands inside the loop.
Forever Loop-there is no limitation on how many times a sequence will repeat inside the loop. Once the computer reaches a forever loop it will run the instructions inside of them forever or at least until the program is stopped.
What is a computer?
