# Find the Biggest and Smallest of 3 numbers using lists in Python

Hello everyone, welcome to Programming In Python! Here we discuss a simple Python program that finds the biggest and smallest of 3 numbers using lists. Here we use Python lists in this program.

Lists are the most commonly used data structure in Python, it is similar to array in most other programming languages.

Here we add the 3 numbers to the list and use `max()` and `min()` functions on it to find the biggest and smallest number respectively.

In the previous tutorials, we discussed finding the biggest and smallest number using functions: Link

To find the smallest and most significant number out of the given 3 numbers.

## Approach :

• Read 3 input numbers using `input()` or `raw_input()`.
• Add these 3 numbers to list `lst = [number1, number2, number3]`.
• Using `max()` function to find the biggest number `max(lst)`.
• Finding the smallest number by using `min()` function `min(lst)`.
• Print the result.

## Program :

```number1 = int(input('Enter First number : '))
number2 = int(input('Enter Second number : '))
number3 = int(input('Enter Third number : '))

lst = [number1, number2, number3]

print("The largest of the 3 numbers is : ", max(lst))
print("The smallest of the 3 numbers is : ", min(lst))```
