Using only standard math operators (+, -, *, /) and functions (absolute value, square root, powers, and so on), give a function that calculates MAX(A,B,C).
Alternate version, for programmers only: using any language (BASIC, C, Excel, whatever) find the maximum of A, B, and C, but be careful when writing the program, because you cannot use the ">" key, for it's broken (thus writing things like IF A>B is impossible...) and you cannot use the "M" key either, for it's also broken (...and writing H=MAX(A,B) is also not possible.)
Someone mentioned rounding errors at the beginning. In case I missed the following discussions, has it been determined that A, B and C are integers?
It seems to me that many of the algorithms work only for integers, since a lot of decisions are based on equality.
