Problem Statement - actual and formal parameters

Differentiate between formal parameter and actual parameter.


TC++ #4225

Formal Parameters are parameters or arguments of a function or metod which are present in the header of a function definition. For e.g. in the following function
int add(int a, int b) {    return a+b; }
a and b are formal parameters.

Actual parameters are used at the time of method or function invocation. For e.g. in the following statement
int x=add(2,3);
values 2 and 3 are actual parameters.
