Snapshot sequence
Hi guys, having problems understand what exactly this means :
Write a snapshot sequence for the computation 12 mod 5 of the following
algorithm
MOD
Input: a nonnegative integer a and a positive integer b
Output: the remainder when a is divided by b
1. while a is greater than or equal to b
2. replace a with a  b
3. return a
The first snapshot is
(1. a = 12, b = 5)
I'm not too sure what a snapshot sequence is, hopefully I can get some help with this question guys

Re: Snapshot sequence
Can you ask whoever wrote that description what a "snapshot sequence" is?
I've never heard of it.

The lecturer has posted it on the course website and as a question for an assignment. I have sent him 3 emails over the course of the last month he has still not replied
