The program worked correctly when the numbers were in descending order, but when I changed the array to ascending order it is giving me wrong output.

Code:

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int binarySearch(int [], int, int); // function prototype
const int SIZE = 16;
int main()
{
int found, value;
int array[] = { 0,2,2,3,5,9,11,12,12,12,13,17,18,19,19,34 };
// array to be searched
cout << "Enter an integer to search for:" << endl;
cin >> value;
found = binarySearch(array, SIZE, value); //function call to perform the binary search
//on array looking for an occurrence of value
if (found == -1)
cout << "The value " << value << " is not in the list" << endl;
else
{
cout << "The value " << value << " is in position number "
<< found + 1 << " of the list" << endl;
}
system("pause");
return 0;
}

int middle = 0; // variable containing the current
// middle value of the list
while (first <= last)
{
middle = first + (last - first) / 2;
if (array[middle] == value)
return middle; // if value is in the middle, we are done
else if (array[middle]<value)
last = middle - 1; // toss out the second remaining half of
// the array and search the first
else
first = middle + 1; // toss out the first remaining half of
// the array and search the second
}
return -1; // indicates that value is not in the array
}
