Hi!

We don't just hand out solutions here, but we can help you find one yourself.

There are many different sorting algorithms, the easiest probably being bubble sort and one of the faster ones is Merge sort. Pseudocode for both can be found on the wikipedia articles I linked to. Now, for that amount of items, the difference will only be marginal, so it doesn't really matter, which one you choose.

Putting them into a matrix afterwards shouldn't be too hard.

Greetings,
