## Take three numbers as arguments and returns the largest of them.

A function max_of_three() that takes three numbers as arguments and returns the largest of them.

Users can enter any three numbers from the key-board and then we can find that among that three numbers which is the greatest number. If you want to find the least number then also you can find it.

### Algorithm: To find the largest number with 3 numbers

• Step1. start
• Step2. define max function
• Step3. In max function read a, b, c
• Step4. check the condition a>b and a>c
• Step5.If the condition is true return a
• Step6. Otherwise check the condition b>c
• Step7. If the condition is true return b Otherwise return c
• Step8. declare the variables a,b,c, and read them.
• Step9. Print the largest of three numbers.
• Step10. End   Program:

### Source Code: Python Program to Find the Largest Among Three Numbers

`def max(a,b,c):    if (a>b and a>c):        return a    elif(b>c):        return b    else:        return ca=int(input('enter a:'))b=int(input('enter b:'))c=int(input('enter c:'))ans=max(a,b,c)print('largest of three numbers=', ans)`

### Output:

enter a:23
enter b:33
enter c:23
largest of three numbers= 33 ## Recommended Posts:
