What is an Algorithm?

Program =  Algorithm + Data Structures

said our professor on a programming class in college. She was probably borrowing the title of the book by Niklaus Wirth.

During an analysis of algorithms class incidentally by the same professor, she asked what is an algorithm?

And so I answered:

Algorithm = Program - Data Structures
