You have to use if-elif to write a Python function to find the max of three numbers.
Python function to find the max of three numbers
Simple example code finds the largest number among the three numbers.
def maximum(a, b, c): if (a >= b) and (a >= c): largest = a elif (b >= a) and (b >= c): largest = b else: largest = c return largest res = maximum(2, 4, 7) print("Largest Number: ", res)
Another example using 2 function
def max_of_two(x, y): if x > y: return x return y def max_of_three(x, y, z): return max_of_two(x, max_of_two(y, z)) print(max_of_three(3, 6, -5))
User input numbers
n1 = int(input("Enter first number: ")); n2 = int(input("Enter second number: ")); n3 = int(input("Enter Third number: ")); def f_max(): if (n1 >= n2) and (n1 >= n3): l = n1 elif (n2 >= n1) and (n2 >= n3): l = n2 else: l = n3 print("A Largest number among the three is", l) f_max()
Enter first number: 5
Enter second number: 15
Enter Third number: 10
A largest number among the three is 15
