    Well there are lots of sorting algorithms, the easiest being Bubble Sort, which is easy to implement in any programming language.
    Checkout this thread for details of a few sorting algorithms http://www.go4expert.com/showthread.php?t=337
    In case, you have some trouble, G4E help is just a post away.

    ....the easiest being Bubble Sort( but worse time complexity), which is easy to implement in any programming language.

    That's right! But, for someone who is new to sorting algorithms Bubble Sort is the easiest to understand and implement.

    well i think selection sort isbest for beginners in dat u dont have to bother to check which is smallest
    i m giving code for it
    if the nos are stored in an array' a'
    a=num[k]
    i varies from 0 to 4 nd k varies from 1 to 5
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    main()
    {
    int a[5],t,min,i,j;   \\considering all no. entered to be integer type
    printf("\n please enter 5 no")  \\here u enter your 5 numbers
    for( i=0;i<5;i++)
    scanf("%d",&a[i]);
    \\ now the sorting part
    
    for(i=0;i<5;i++)
    for(j=i+1;j<5;j++)
    if(a[i]>a[j]){t=a[i];
                      a[i]=a[j];
                      a[j]=t;
                     }
    \\ now to print the sorted array    
    for(i=0;i<5;i++)
    printf("\n %d"a[i]);
    
    
    getch();
    }
    \\ yah dats it
