    public class SortInt
        public static void sort(int cases[])              //Sorting fuction, the array of nums is passed to it
            int temp;                                    //a temp var is need to swtich the values in the array
            for(int i = 0; i < cases.length - 1; i++)        //Start of the bubble sort, you need to take one away from
            {                                               //the legnth of the array b/c you dont need to go throw the
                for(int j = 0; j < cases.length - 1; j++) //array that many times. Also if it whould go passt the end of
                {                                           //the array in the second loop wich whould not been good.
                    if(cases[j].compareTo(cases[j+1]) > 0)               //This part checks to see if the number before it is bigger
                                                                        //You must use the compareTo() method of a string
                    {                                       //Note: chage the < opprator to > to sort from samllest to lagergets
                        temp = cases[j];                    //Sotres the value of nums[ii] in the temp var for use latter
                        cases[j] = cases[j+1];              //puts the value of the bigger number where the lesser one was
                        cases[j+1] = temp;                  //puts the value of the lesser var back in the array where the
                    }                                       //biger one was.
        public static void main(String[] args)
             //declares an array to be sorted
             int[] cases = {200000 , 300000 , 100000 ,400000 , 500000 , 750000 , 1000000,
    		 1 , 2 , 5 ,400 ,500,750, 1000 ,

             System.out.println("Before sort():\n");
             for(int i = 0; i < cases.length; i++)      //for loop to show all the values of the array
                 System.out.println(cases[i]);          //uses the for loop index var to slect an array entreay
             sort(cases);                               //sends the array to the sort() fuction
             System.out.println("\nAfter sort():\n");
             for(int i = 0; i < cases.length; i++)      //for loop to show the realostes of the sorting
