# Python: Find the three largest integers from a given list of numbers using Heap queue algorithm

## Python heap queue algorithm: Exercise-1 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the three largest integers from a given list of numbers using the heap queue algorithm.

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
import heapq as hq
nums_list = [25, 35, 22, 85, 14, 65, 75, 22, 58]
print("Original list:")
print(nums_list)
# Find three largest values
largest_nums = hq.nlargest(3, nums_list)
print("\nThree largest numbers are:", largest_nums)
```

Sample Output:

Original list: [25, 35, 22, 85, 14, 65, 75, 22, 58] Three largest numbers are: [85, 75, 65]
