    Whats the name of this question

    i came across a question where it included a flowchart like thing,
    all it had is an add the contents of box1 to box 3 and store in box 4 ...
    It goes on till an iteration..
    Its basically to test the speed and accuracy..

    something like this... in flowchart format
    While (content of box 9) <100


    Add 2 to content of box 1 and put it in box 2 for the first iteration
    Add 3 to content of box 1 and put it in box 2 for the second iteration
    Add 4 to content of box 1 and put it in box 2 for the third iteration
    Add ..


    Multiply content of box whose number is in box 2 by 2 and put it in box 6


    Divide content of box 6 by 10 and put it in box 7


    Add content of box 6 and 7 and place it in the box whose number is in box 7


    Add content of box 9 with box number whose content is 7



    Multiply all boxes with odd numbers by two, divide all boxes with even numbers by two, place the result in the same box and write the result as a string with the contents of all boxes (1-9) with a space in between the contents of every box in the result string
