In scientific articles an article is usually omitted when referring to figures, tables, etc. and a capital letter is used. For example I would state: "The data are shown in Figure 1."
I have an algorithm in my article and its lines are numbered. I want to refer to a certain line of the algorithm and I don't know whether the above also applies in this situation. Which of the following should I use:
- "on the line x",
- "on line x",
- "on Line x",
where "x" is a line number?
EDIT: An example of an algorithm:
Algorithm IsOne(i): 1: if i = 1 2: return true 3: else 4: return false 5: end if
