# 8085 program to count number of elements which are less than 0A

In this section we will count elements which are lesser than 0AH using 8085.

## problem Statement

There is an array of some elements. Write 8085 Assembly language program to count number of elements that are lesser than 0AH.

## Discussion

The array is placed at location F051H onwards. The F050 is holding the size of the array. The logic is simple. At first we will take the array size into the B register. The C register will count number of elements less than 0AH. We will take numbers one by one from memory, then compare it with 0A. if the CY flag is set it indicates that the Accumulator is holding smaller value, so increase C by one, otherwise ignore it.
