  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 01 Aug, 2020

Given three number a b and c, the task is that we have to find the greatest element in among in given number
Examples:

Input : a = 2, b = 4, c = 3
Output : 4 

Input : a = 4, b = 2, c = 6 
Output : 6

Method 1 (Simple)

 Attention geek! Strengthen your foundations with the Python Programming Foundation Course and learn the basics.

# Python program to find 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
  
  
# Driven code 
a = 10
b = 14
c = 12
print(maximum(a, b, c))

Output:



14

 

Method 2 (Using List)
. Initialize three number by n1, n2 and n3
. Add three numbers into list lst = [n1, n2, n3].
. Using max() function to find the greatest number max(lst).
. And finally we will print maximum number




# Python program to find the largest number 
# among the  three numbers using library function 
  
def maximum(a, b, c):
    list = [a, b, c]
    return max(list)
  
# Driven code 
a = 10
b = 14
c = 12
print(maximum(a, b, c))

Output:

14

Method 3 (Using max function)




# Python program to find the largest number 
# among the  three numbers using library function 
  
# Driven code 
a = 10
b = 14
c = 12
print(max(a, b, c))

Output:

14
