# Sort 3 Integers without using if condition or using only max() function

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 23 Mar, 2021

Given three inteÂ­gers, print them in sorted order withÂ­out using if condition.
Examples :

```Input  : a = 3, b = 2, c = 9
Output : 2 3 9

Input  : a = 4, b = 1, c = 9
Output : 1 4 9```

Approach :
1. Find the maxÂ­iÂ­mum of a, b, c using max() function.
3. MulÂ­tiÂ­ply all inteÂ­gers by â€“1. Again find MinÂ­iÂ­mum of â€“a, â€“b, â€“c using max() function.
4. Add the Max and Min from above steps and subÂ­tract the sum from (a+b+c). It gives us midÂ­dle element.
It works for negative numbers also.
