If Statements are like Rollercoasters


If Statements are like Rollercoasters

Think of the If statement as a detour in the flow of a program. It’s like an optional roller coaster loop (see Figure below). At some point in the program, the If condition’s checked. If it’s true, Small Basic runs the statements that are between the If and the EndIf keywords and continues its path. But if it’s false, Small Basic skips those statements.

But you don’t have to be tall to go on this roller coaster!
