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.
Thanks.
