# Python: Sort numbers based on strings

## Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-41 with Solution

Write a Python program to sort numbers based on strings.

Input: six one four one two three Output: one two three four six Input: six one four three two nine eight Output: one two three four six eight nine Input: nine eight seven six five four three two one Output: one two three four five six seven eight nine

**Pictorial Presentation:**

**Sample Solution-1:**

**Python Code:**

```
#License: https://bit.ly/3oLErEI
def test(strs):
return ' '.join([x for x in 'one two three four five six seven eight nine'.split() if x in strs])
strs = "six one four one two three"
print("Original string:",strs)
print("Sort numbers based on said strings:")
print(test(strs))
strs = "six one four three two nine eight"
print("\nOriginal string:",strs)
print("Sort numbers based on said strings:")
print(test(strs))
strs = "nine eight seven six five four three two one"
print("\nOriginal string:",strs)
print("Sort numbers based on said strings:")
print(test(strs))
```

Sample Output:

Original string: six one four one two three Sort numbers based on said strings: one two three four six Original string: six one four three two nine eight Sort numbers based on said strings: one two three four six eight nine Original string: nine eight seven six five four three two one Sort numbers based on said strings: one two three four five six seven eight nine

def test(strs):
nums = 'zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero one one one one one one one one one one one one two two two two three three three three three four four four four four four five five five five five five five six six six six six six six seven seven seven seven seven seven seven seven eight eight eight eight eight eight eight eight nine nine nine nine nine nine nine nine nine'.split()
return " ".join([nums[i] for i in sorted([nums.index(x) for x in strs.split()])]).rstrip()
strs = "six one four one two three"
print("Original string:",strs)
print("Sort numbers based on said strings:")
print(test(strs))
strs = "six one four three two nine eight"
print("\nOriginal string:",strs)
print("Sort numbers based on said strings:")
print(test(strs))
strs = "nine eight seven six five four three two zero one"
print("\nOriginal string:",strs)
print("Sort numbers based on said strings:")
print(test(strs))
```

Sample Output:

Original string: six one four one two three Sort numbers based on said strings: one one two three four six Original string: six one four three two nine eight Sort numbers based on said strings: one two three four six eight nine Original string: nine eight seven six five four three two zero one Sort numbers based on said strings: zero one two three four five six seven eight nine

**Clamps num within the inclusive range specified by the boundary values x and y:**

Example:

def tips_clamp_num(num,x,y): return max(min(num, max(x, y)), min(x, y)) print(tips_clamp_num(2, 4, 6)) print(tips_clamp_num(1, -1, -6))

Output:

4 -1
