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

## Python heap queue algorithm: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the three smallest 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 smallest values
largest_nums = hq.nsmallest(3, nums_list)
print("\nThree smallest numbers are:", largest_nums)
```

Sample Output:

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