Apply insertion sort to the Input table below.

You can simulate the algorithm by performing all the necessary assignment operations in code lines 2, 5 and 7. In order to assign, for example, the value in array position 1 into the tmp variable (tmp = a[1]), drag and drop the corresponding value from Input on top of the tmp beneath the array.

1 for i = 1 to n-1 do
2   tmp = a[i]
3   j = i
4   while j > 0 AND a[j-1] > tmp do
5     a[j] = a[j-1]
6     j = j - 1
7   a[j] = tmp
