int i, l = 0, sm = 0;
int arr[] = new int[5];
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.print("Enter 5 numbers:");
for (i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
arr[i] = sc.nextInt();
}
l = arr[0];
sm = arr[0];
for (i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
if (l < arr[i]) {
l = arr[i];
}
if (sm > arr[i]) {
sm = arr[i];
}
}
System.out.println("Largest element:" + l);
System.out.println("Smallest element:" + sm);
}
}
