Simply find out the three largest numbers and the two smallest numbers using one pass.

```
public int maximumProduct(int[] nums) {
int max1 = Integer.MIN_VALUE, max2 = Integer.MIN_VALUE, max3 = Integer.MIN_VALUE, min1 = Integer.MAX_VALUE, min2 = Integer.MAX_VALUE;
for (int n : nums) {
if (n > max1) {
max3 = max2;
max2 = max1;
max1 = n;
} else if (n > max2) {
max3 = max2;
max2 = n;
} else if (n > max3) {
max3 = n;
}
if (n < min1) {
min2 = min1;
min1 = n;
} else if (n < min2) {
min2 = n;
}
}
return Math.max(max1*max2*max3, max1*min1*min2);
}
```
