Sorting three numbers

  • 8
  • Locked
Planet Linear Chaos is populated by isomorphs. They are believed to have invented sorting algorithms. Everything in their heads is extremely well-ordered. They only issue planetary visas to people who know at least 7 sorting algorithms. Let's take our first step toward Linear Chaos: Read three numbers from the keyboard, put them in descending order, and then display them on the screen.

Something is wrong! it keeps asking me to put them in descending order while they are in descending order.

I'm always over-thinking the solution.....I know there is probably a more efficient way of solving these however we need to stick to the lesson. So....if - else if...

if you use Math.max and Math.min and find the medium ,you wont need to write alot of codes.

This one was a bit tough, not impossible though. I recommend if you are not familiar with arrays yet, use nested if else and <= or >= .

From user input create an Integer (not int bcs it can't be reverse sorted later) array, Arrays.sort it with reverse order (import Arrays and Collections), use for loop to print the previously sorted elements, done. Wasting time with multiple IF conditions.

if (max(a,b)<max(b,c))
            System.out.println(max(b,c)+" "+max(min(b,c),a)+" "+min(min(a,b),c));
            System.out.println(max(a,b)+" "+max(min(a,b),c)+" "+min(min(a,b),c));
I did it like this, tell me if this was done?
