    Hi, Don. With a sorted array, you can perform a sequential search (easy to implement but relatively slow), or if the size of the array is large, a binary search is more efficient. Googling "Java binary search" should come up with the code you're after.

    Because the array is sorted an appropriate algorithm is obvious. If it is not obvious to you, read your textbook or your class notes. 

    If you fell asleep in class the day they covered searching and sorting, then get Volume 3 of Donald Knuth's book, "The Art of Computer Programming." Drop the class and read the book instead. Do ALL the exercises.

    You're not asking a question. You're asking us to do your homework for you. Not cool.
