Binary search explained: Learning C# Algorithms

Reynald defines a binary search is: a search algorithm that finds the position of a target value within a sorted array. He explains how binary search compares the target value to the middle element of the array; if they are unequal, the half in which the target can’t lie is eliminated and the search continues on the remaining half until it is successful or the remaining half is empty. He then provides a visual representation so that the student is fully prepared to write their own version in the video that follows.
