How to Sort Arrays in PHP

It is always easier to grab a specific piece of information from sorted data, otherwise you have to go through each element of the array one at a time. For example, lets say you have stored the score of different students in a class in an array or a table. If the data is not sorted by the scores obtained, you will have to look at the score of each student in the class before you can tell who obtained the highest and lowest score. If the table was already sorted low to high on basis of scores, just looking at the score of first student would tell you the lowest mark.
