If you just have to swap each pair within the array, you'd need a dummy variable and a loop.

There are some cool mathematical tricks to swap two integers without using a temp variable, but this is the kindest solution to future readers of your code.
Hope that helped. And hope I haven't just stepped in and done somebody's homework.
