    Thank you so much for puttting together these articles.

    I would be happy to help improve the Finite State Machine article.
    The content is useful, but the article needs help.

    1. Typo on the 5th block of text.
    ---> "The design procedure"


    2. I would rewrite this statement to not end on a preposition.
    3. Avoid the use of "very", sentence is missing a "we".

    Thanks for your review.

    1. Apparent typo, nothing to add.
    -Correction: The design procedure has specific steps that must be followed in order to get the work done:

    2. Since English isn't my native language, can you propose a better sentence? Is "... condition at which our machine can be at a certain time".
    Why is it bad to end with a preposition?
    -Correction: Every circle represents a "state", a well-defined condition at which our machine can be at a certain time.

    3. "Very" is a redundant, indeed.
    In retrospect, I would change the last sentence to:
    "...specific form. Below is the completed state table of our example. We will use it to explain how it is filled in."
    Does that sound better?
    -Correction: Afterwards, we fill the State Table. This table has a specific form. Below is the completed state table of our example. We will use it to explain how it is filled in.

    Note to the e-book editor: Please preserve the Italics format.
