## Introduction

We've talked about how to get a series of dice rolls, but we didn't do much with those rolls. Until now!

## Task

Write the `getLongestRun`

method in the `Dice`

class that takes an int array representing a series of Dice rolls and returns the length of the longest run of consecutive numbers.

## Starter code

```
import java.util.Random;
class Dice{
/** Returns the length of the longest run of repeated values
in int[] rolls.
@param rolls – an array of integer values representing a
series of dice rolls.
@return – the length of the longest run.
**/
int getLongestRun(int[] rolls){
/* Your code here */
}
int[] getRolls(int numRolls){
int[] rolls = new int[numRolls];
for(int i = 0; i < numRolls; i++){
rolls[i] = roll();
}
return rolls;
}
int roll(){
Random gen = new Random();
return gen.nextInt(5) + 1;
}
}
```

## Expected output

It'll depend on the (random) array you're working with, but two examples –
In this array, the length of the maximum run – in this case, of 2s – is 2:

But in this array, the "longest" run is 1:
