## Sorting a slice of integer in ascending order in Golang

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will create a slice and then sort slice elements using the sort.Ints() function and then print sorted slice on the console screen.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to sort a slice of integer in ascending order is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

## Golang code to sort a slice of integer in ascending order

```// Golang program to sort slice of integer
// in ascending order

package main

import "fmt"
import "sort"

func main() {
slice := []int{70, 20, 30, 60, 50, 60, 10, 80, 90, 100}

sort.Ints(slice)

fmt.Println("Sorted slice: ")
for _, ele := range slice {
fmt.Printf("%d ", ele)
}
}
```

Output:

```Sorted slice:
10 20 30 50 60 60 70 80 90 100
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we declare the package main. The main package is used to tell the Go language compiler that the package must be compiled and produced the executable file. Here, we imported the fmt package that includes the files of package fmt then we can use a function related to the fmt package.

In the above program, we also imported the sort package to use the Ints() function to sort integer slice.

In the main() function, we created a slice of integer numbers, then we sorted elements of the slice using the Ints() function of the sort package. After that, we printed the result on the console screen.
