# Sort 3 Integers without using if condition or using only max() function

Given three inte­gers, print them in sorted order with­out using if condition.
Examples :

```Input  : a = 3, b = 2, c = 9
Output : 2 3 9

Input  : a = 4, b = 1, c = 9
Output : 1 4 9```

Approach :
1. Find the max­i­mum of a, b, c using max() function.
3. Mul­ti­ply all inte­gers by –1. Again find Min­i­mum of –a, –b, –c using max() function.
4. Add the Max and Min from above steps and sub­tract the sum from (a+b+c). It gives us mid­dle element.
It works for negative numbers also.
