Before coding into c language, identify what exactly you are coding. The following example will illustrate.
Consider if you are trying to make a digital watch program in C, first decompose it as follows
Digital Watch = Led panel + Timer
Keep on decomposing till you reach C's fundamental instruction set as follows
LED panel= Digit * 4
Digit= 8* leds
This technique is called divide and conquer. The fundamental of this technique is, decompose the problem until it can be readily solved using basic functions you already know about.
