first you would set a high and low variable
code:

var high:int:=-9999
var low:int:=9999

you use it like that because you are comparing the high to the numbers they have entered... so thats what you do next
code:
if(num > high)then
high:=num

you do the same for the low... so
code:
if(num < low)then
low:=num
end if

then you put it in a loop to do it to every number...

delta wrote this for you in one of your other posts... you would just add in the high as well... so..
code:

var low:int:=9999
var high:int:=-9999
var num:int

for i : 1.. 6
    put "Enter in a number"
    get num
    if (num < low)then
        low := num
    eslif(num>high)then
        high:=num
    end if
    cls
end for
put "The Lowest number is: ",low
put "The highest number is: ",high
