In this tutorial you will learn about the Python Program to Find the Largest Among Three Numbers and its application with practical example.
In this tutorial, we will learn to create a Python Program to Find the Largest Among Three Numbers using Python programming.
Before starting with this tutorial we assume that you are best aware of the following Python programming topics:
- Basic Input and Output
- Basic Python programming.
- Python if-else statements.
- Python Loop.
Largest Among three?
In our program we will take three numbers from user and stored in variables a,b and c respectively. here we will use ‘if-elif-else’ ladder statement to find the largest among the three and display it.
Python Program to Find the Largest Among Three Numbers
In this program we will Find Largest among three elements. We would first declared and initialized the required variables. then we would prompt user to input values .Later we will find largest among three.
# Python program to find the largest number among the three
# taking value from user
a= int(input("enter first number"))
b= int(input("enter second number"))
c= int(input("enter third number"))
# checking condition for first variable greater
if (a >= b) and (a >= c):
print("The largest number is",a)
# checking condition for second variable greater
elif (b >= a) and (b >= c):
print("The largest number is", b)
# checking condition for third variable greater
elif (c >= a) and (c >= b):
print("The largest number is", c)
# if all three are not greater they either equal or zero
print("They re equal or zero")
In the above program, we have first declared and initialized a set variables required in the program.
- a = it will hold entered first variable value.
- b = it will hold entered second variable value.
- c = it will hold entered third variable value.
In our program, we will use 3 values in variable ‘a,b and c‘ ,after getting these values we will find the largest among three.
First of all we declare variables and initialize value from user.
After initiate values we will check condition for first variable has greatest value among three if the value in first variable is greater than second and third variable we can say that the value in first is largest among two.
if not we will move to elif section where we check second variable is greatest among two if it then we print second is the largest among these three.
else if we again jump to next ‘elif’ statement where we check renaming last variable is greatest
if all these condition false it means the value within the variable is either zero or equal .
Here use the ‘if…elif…else‘ ladder to find the largest among the three.
