If Monday = 0, Tuesday = 1 etc…

Write an algorithm which:
Asks the user to enter a number,
Outputs the day that the number represents,
Validates the number so that an error message displays if the number is not a valid weekday number.

What programming language is this in/is it in pseudocode or a flowchart? You'd be looking at getting a user input, assigning to a variable (e.g. user_Input = INPUT()') and then either using several if, else-if statements to go if user_input = whatever, then output the day. You can then have an else statetement that outputs invalid if the number doesn't match. If you're programming, you could also have a dictionary with "0" assigned to "Monday", etc. and then getting that location. Hopefully that makes sense, you can piece it together from there. Best of luck
