# Python: Find the difference between the largest integer and the smallest integer which are created by 8 numbers from 0 to 9

## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-51 with Solution

Write a Python program that determines the difference between the largest and smallest integers created by 8 numbers from 0 to 9. The number that can be rearranged shall start with 0 as in 00135668.

**Input:**

Data is a sequence of 8 numbers (numbers from 0 to 9).

Output:

The difference between the largest integer and the smallest integer.

**Visual Presentation:**

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
# Print statement to prompt the user to input an integer created by 8 numbers from 0 to 9
print("Input an integer created by 8 numbers from 0 to 9.:")
# Convert the input integer to a list of characters
num = list(input())
# Print statement to calculate and display the difference between the largest and smallest integer from the given integer
print("Difference between the largest and the smallest integer from the given integer:")
# Convert the list of characters to integers after sorting in ascending and descending order
# Calculate the difference between the largest and smallest integers and print the result
print(int("".join(sorted(num, reverse=True))) - int("".join(sorted(num))))
```

Sample Output:

Input an integer created by 8 numbers from 0 to 9.: 34568729 Difference between the largest and the smallest integer from the given integer: 75308643

**Explanation:**

Here is a breakdown of the above Python code:

- The above code prompts the user to input an integer created by 8 numbers from 0 to 9.
- User input is converted into a list of characters.
- The code calculates the difference between the largest and smallest integers created from the given input.
- Finally the result is printed.
