Hi I have a little exercise that I was assigned. This is what needs to be done:

- Read 10 numbers from keyboard.

- Sort them by Insertion Sort algorithm

- Print the sorted numbers in ascending order

This is for MIPS and the program I use to run it is PCSPIM. I have little knowledge of this language but I have attempted to write a code that sorts three numbers. I am hoping if I can get that to work then adjusting it to 10 numbers should be okay.

```
main:
.data 0x10010000
.asciiz "\nType 1st double digit number and press enter:\n"
.data 0x10010100
.asciiz "\nType 2nd double digit number and press enter:\n"
.data 0x10010200
.asciiz "\nType 3rd double digit number and press enter:\n"
.data 0x10010300
.asciiz "\nAfter Sorting you get: "
.text
ori $v0, $zero, 4
lui $a0, 0x1001
ori $a0, $a0, 0 #prompt for 1st number
syscall
ori $v0, $zero, 5 #read first number
syscall
or $s0, $zero, $v0
ori $v0, $zero, 4

i know there could be an issue with my loop but I havent been able to fix it. If my method is too long or doesnt make sense please suggest another if possible. I am running out of ideas.
