In this post, you will learn python break and continue statements with the help of flowcharts and examples.

## What is a Break and Continue statement in Python

break and continue are known as jump statement because it is used to change the regular flow of the program or loop when a particular condition is met.

Let’s see both statements one by one in detail.

## Break statement

The break statement is used to terminate the execution of the current loop when a particular condition is met.

Syntax: `break`

### Flowchart for Break statement

From the Flowchart, we understand it if a particular condition is met then the break statement terminates the execution of the current loop.

let’s see break statement with the help of an example

### Example

Example-1: break statement with for-loop

``````# Demo of break statement with for-loop
for i in range(1,11):
if i==6:
break
print(i)

print('end of the for-loop')``````

Output:

From the output, we understood that `if i == 6` then the `break` statement terminates the loop and jumps to the next statement that is `print('end of the for-loop')`.

Example-2: break statement with while-loop

``````# Demo of break statement with while-loop
i = 0
while i <= 10:
if i == 5:
break
print(i)
i+=1

print('End of the while loop')``````

Output:

## Continue statement

The continue statement help in skipping a particular iteration of the current loop when a particular condition is met.

Syntax: `continue`

### Flowchart for Continue statement

From the Flowchart, we understand it if a particular condition is met then the continue statement skips a particular iteration of the current loop.

let’s see continue statement with the help of an example

### Example

Example-1: continue statement with for-loop

``````# Demo of continue statement with for-loop
for i in range(1,6):
if i == 3:
continue
print(i)``````

Output:

From the output, we understood that `if i == 3` then the `continue` statement skips a particular iteration of the current loop (that is 3).

Example-2: continue statement with while-loop

``````i = 0
while i<=4:
i+=1
if i == 2:
continue
print(i)``````
