My Solution on Assignment 2 - Problem 5

This is my Solution of Assignment 2 - Problem 5 from the Computer Science Course CS106A of Prof. Mehran Sahami at the STANFORD University.

FindRange.java

 * File: FindRange.java
 * Name: Axel Werner
 * Section Leader: 
 * --------------------
 * This file is the starter file for the FindRange problem.

	 * to determine and report the min. + max. numbers in the list.
