Thanks! RE: [split] Python for Everybody 5.2 assignment - micseydel - Jun-14-2019 Can you be more specific? What inputs are you using? How exactly is the behavior different from what you want? RE: [split] Python for Everybody 5.2 assignment - nilamo - Jun-14-2019 (Jun-14-2019, 04:38 PM)jonchanzw Wrote: elif num > largest : num is a string. largest is a float. You have an fnum variable available, why not use that for comparisons? RE: [split] Python for Everybody 5.2 assignment - Arjun - Oct-21-2019 Here the code will help you...…… largest = None smallest = None while True: try: num = input("Enter the number: ") if num == "done": break num = int(num) if largest is None or largest < num: largest = num elif smallest is None or smallest > num: smallest = num except ValueError: print("Invalid input") print ("Maximum is", largest) print ("Minimum is", smallest) RE: [split] Python for Everybody 5.2 assignment - perfringo - Oct-22-2019 As far as my googling went I understood that there are basically no limitations regarding solution. So one can take advantage of Python 3.8 new cool feature and of course use built-in min and max to deliver result: ints = [] while (answer := input('Enter integer: ').lower()) != 'done': try: ints.append(int(answer)) except ValueError: print(f"{answer!r} can't be interpreted as integer") print(f'Maximum entered value was {max(ints)} and minimum value was {min(ints)}')
