Pictorial Presentation:

Python: Find the median among three given numbers

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

x = input("Input the first number")
y = input("Input the second number")
z = input("Input the third number")
print("Median of the above three numbers -")

if y < x and x < z:
    print(x)
elif z < x and x < y:
    print(x)
    
elif z < y and y < x:
    print(y)
elif x < y and y < z:
    print(y)
    
elif y < z and z < x:
    print(z)    
elif x < z and z < y:
    print(z)

Sample Output:

Input the first number 25
Input the second number 15
Input the third number 35
Median of the above three numbers -
25

Python: Tips of the Day

Checks if the given number falls within the given range.

Example:

def tips_range(n, start, end = 0):
  return start <= n <= end if end >= start else end <= n <= start
print(tips_range(2, 4, 6))
print(tips_range(4, 8))
print(tips_range(1, 3, 5))
print(tips_range(1, 3))

Output:

False
True
False
True
