Python Exercise: Find the median of three values

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

a = float(input("Input first number: "))
b = float(input("Input second number: "))
c = float(input("Input third number: "))
if a > b:
    if a < c:
        median = a
    elif b > c:
        median = b
    else:
        median = c
else:
    if a > c:
        median = a
    elif b < c:
        median = b
    else:
        median = c

print("The median is", median)

Sample Output:

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

Example:

def tips_func(x, y, z):
  print(x, y, z)
  
tuple_val = (2, 0, 2)
dict_val = {'x': 3, 'y': 2, 'z': 1}
tips_func(*tuple_val)
tips_func(**dict_val)

Output:

2 0 2
