Finding the max using only if statements? That's going to be such a pain and rather impractical (not necessarily the lack of an if-else, but rather the lack of loops or recursion).
Your code almost works, but you must compare for min/max after entering each value rather only at the end. The first number though should automatically be the min/max (you do have that right)
Just to add to his reply, You were resetting the variables smallest and largest every time you asked, which just meant that they were going to take the value of the what ever was input last and ignore the first 5 times. That's why you need to have an if statement after each time you get a number.
