Array of integers

What is the best way to get determine the largest and smallest int in an
array of ints? For example:

x = [1,2,3,4]

x.smallest should = 1
x.largest should = 4

How is this done in Ruby?

Thank you,
Brad

puts x.max
puts x.min

See the documentation for Enumerable (try “ri Enumerable” at your
prompt).

[1,2,3].max
=> 3

[1,2,3].min
=> 1
