For this quiz I had to make a program that would print the smallest value and the sum of the square of three numbers given by the user (x,y, and z).

I decided to use conditionals to get the smallest value, like this:

if x <= y <= z or x <= z <=y:

return x

elif y <= x <=z or y <=z <=x:

return y

else:

return z

At first I didn’t put the equals in the equation, so there was trouble when two inputs were the same. However, I then added them to my code and everything was fine! When I was done this is how it looked:

And this is how it runned:
