# Python: Reorder numbers in increasing/decreasing order based on whether the first plus last element is even/odd

## Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-75 with Solution

Write a Python program to reorder numbers from a given array in increasing/decreasing order based on whether the first plus last element is odd/even.

Input: [3, 7, 4] Output: [3, 4, 7] Input: [2, 7, 4] Output: [7, 4, 2] Input: [1, 5, 6, 7, 4, 2, 8] Output: [1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8] Input: [1, 5, 6, 7, 4, 2, 9] Output: [9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 2, 1]

def test(nums):
return sorted(nums, reverse=(False if (nums[0] + nums[-1]) % 2 else True))
print("Reorder numbers of a give array in increasing/decreasing order based on whether the first plus last element is odd/even.:")
nums = [3, 7, 4]
print("\nList of numbers:",nums)
print("Result:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [2, 7, 4]
print("\nList of numbers:",nums)
print("Result:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [1, 5, 6, 7, 4, 2, 8]
print("\nList of numbers:",nums)
print("Result:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [1, 5, 6, 7, 4, 2, 9]
print("\nList of numbers:",nums)
print("Result:")
print(test(nums))
```

Sample Output:

Reorder numbers of a give array in increasing/decreasing order based on whether the first plus last element is odd/even.: List of numbers: [3, 7, 4] Result: [3, 4, 7] List of numbers: [2, 7, 4] Result: [7, 4, 2] List of numbers: [1, 5, 6, 7, 4, 2, 8] Result: [1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8] List of numbers: [1, 5, 6, 7, 4, 2, 9] Result: [9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 2, 1]
