How can you write a sorting algorithm for three intergers in simple english terms before it is translated into C?

Do the three integers come in an array or in three distinct variables?

Can you clarify if the sorting algorithm should work for 3 (and no more) or is it a general algorithm that you are supposed to do?

A general one is not much more complicated, but requires the use of for-loops.

For a general sorting using bubble sort (the simplest and the slowest):

N=number of items

A(i)=item i from array A

loop i from 1 to N-1

loop j from i+1 to N

if(A(i)>A(j)) exchange A(i) and A(j)

end loop j

end loop i
