Best Answer

An algorithm is basically a series of steps that can be followed. Usually it involves math or computing or both.

An algorithmic solution would be a solution that a computer could use to solve a problem. It's kind of the opposite of thinking about a problem in order to solve it.

Difference between heuristic solutions and algorithmic solutions?

An Algorithmic solution is a solution that involves a series of actions/steps. For example, baking a cake. A Heuristic solution is a solution that requires knowledge, experience, and sometimes trial and error. For example, buying the best stock. While some problems require only one type of solution, most problems require a combination of the two different types of solutions.

Which problems can be solved by algorithmic process?

Strange as it may seem, we don't actually use algorithms to solve problems; an algorithm is the end-product of problem-solving. In short, every problem that has a solution already has an algorithm. Moreover, every problem that is known to have no solution has a proof to demonstrate that fact. But problems that have yet to be solved have no known algorithm or proof -- and that's precisely why they remain unsolved (for now).
