# Python Exercise: Find the median of three values

## Python Conditional: Exercise - 40 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the median of three values.

**Pictorial Presentation:**

**Sample Solution:**

**Python Code:**

```
# Prompt the user to input the first number and convert it to a floating-point number, assigning it to the variable 'a'
a = float(input("Input first number: "))
# Prompt the user to input the second number and convert it to a floating-point number, assigning it to the variable 'b'
b = float(input("Input second number: "))
# Prompt the user to input the third number and convert it to a floating-point number, assigning it to the variable 'c'
c = float(input("Input third number: "))
# Determine the median among the three numbers
# Check if 'a' is greater than 'b'
if a > b:
# Check if 'a' is less than 'c'
if a < c:
median = a
# Check if 'b' is greater than 'c'
elif b > c:
median = b
else:
median = c
# If 'a' is not greater than 'b'
else:
# Check if 'a' is greater than 'c'
if a > c:
median = a
# Check if 'b' is less than 'c'
elif b < c:
median = b
else:
median = c
# Display the calculated median among the three input numbers
print("The median is", median)
```

Sample Output:

Input first number: 25 Input second number: 55 Input third number: 65 The median is 55.0
