# Designing and Using Functions

1.

a. `2`
a. `7`
a. `4`

2. a. `max(3, 4)`, then `abs(-5)`, then `min(4, 5)`.
b. `max(2, 8)`, then `min(4, 6, 8)`, then `abs(4)`.
c. `max(5.572, 3.258)`, then `abs(-2)`, then `round(5.572, 2)`.

Return num tripled.

4.

```def absolute_difference(number1, number2):
""" (number, number) -> number

Return the absolute value of the difference between number1
and number2.

5.
```def km_to_miles(km):
""" (number) -> float

Return the distance km in miles.

>>> km_to_miles(5)

return km / 1.6

```def average_grade(grade1, grade2, grade3):
""" (number, number, number) -> number

each grade ranges from 0 to 100, inclusive.

# Here is a different solution that does use the function from Q6.
