C# Question

`int[] arr = {800,11,50,771,649,770,240, 9};`

int temp = 0;

for (int write = 0; write < arr.Length; write++)

{

for (int sort = 0; sort < arr.Length - 1; sort++)

{

if (arr[sort] > arr[sort + 1])

{

temp = arr[sort + 1];

arr[sort + 1] = arr[sort];

arr[sort] = temp;

}

}

Console.Write("{0} ", arr[write]);

}

All I am attempting to do is a simple bubble sort with this array. I would like to figure out why the sorting is screwed up.

In example, here is when the array is

`{800,11,50,771,649,770,240, 9}`

Here is what gets displayed:

`11, 50, 649, 9, 649, 770, 771, 800`

I am thinking that I might be missing something in the comparison.

No, your algorithm works but your `Write`

operation is misplaced within the outer loop.

```
int[] arr = { 800, 11, 50, 771, 649, 770, 240, 9 };
int temp = 0;
for (int write = 0; write < arr.Length; write++) {
for (int sort = 0; sort < arr.Length - 1; sort++) {
if (arr[sort] > arr[sort + 1]) {
temp = arr[sort + 1];
arr[sort + 1] = arr[sort];
arr[sort] = temp;
}
}
}
for (int i = 0; i < arr.Length; i++)
Console.Write(arr[i] + " ");
Console.ReadKey();
```
