What does i-esimo mean in an array?


Which means i-th, I'm having trouble understanding its use in arrays and arrays.


When you refer to index 0 of an array , you can say the first element, right? Just as 1 is second, 2 is third, and so on. The 19 is the twentieth.

How would you talk about the i element of the array ? i-th. So when you need to define a "generic" (variable) position of the array , you can use this expression to indicate which element will depend on the value of i to know the real position.

-th (from the ending of hundredth or thousandth) composition element

It expresses the notion of ordinal and fractional numerals (ex.: cagagéth, nth, infinitesimal).
