# 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.
