# 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
```

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
```

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(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

## Python: Tips of the Day

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
```
