I am trying to make an algorithm in LaTeX. For example, I use this template and I want help for this step

First loop mik=aik/akk;

And second loop aij=aij- mikakj;

And finally finish with this final loop


How to write this in LaTeX code?

\section{The algorithm which solves the method Gaussian elimination}
       {write the first loop here}{
      {write the second loop here}
        instructions1\; finish here
      {final loop there}
\caption{How to write algorithms}

Sorry for this wrong please help to solve this.

    Please make your code compilable by adding the documentclass as well as the relevant packages. (See also minimal working example (MWE)). Could you please also try to further clarify your question by adding a sketch of the desired output?

The following might serve as a place to start from:


    \caption{Test algorithm}
        \For{some text here}{
            some text\\
            \For{other stuff}{
                whatever comes here
         some more text

\caption{Test algorithm}
        \For{other stuff}{

is correct
