# * Python Code Challenge *

A question was unanswered for 16hrs. I tried it and am curious how the more experienced Python programmers in the community would handle the problem. I learn alot from seeing how people approach problems differently The task: Write a function that takes in an array of integers and returns the missing numbers. Needs to work with an array of any length. Any starting point. Any Ending point. Example: [11,5,15,7] Return: [6,8,9,10,12,13,14] Mine: https://code.sololearn.com/c2x1dAXrEQOl/?ref=app

Here's the code that I would use for this function https://code.sololearn.com/cctOQ50jxBjQ I just found the maximum and minimum in the input and then used the range to make a list comprehension for the integers that weren't found in the input.

"There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it." - The Zen of Python This problem beautifully illustrates the line above, as my code would have looked exactly like Roy's.

Thanks Leaky Egg! I always love random challenges like this,especially when I get to see how other people solve the same problem in different ways.

Excellent Roy. Works great! List Comprehension just made my list of things to study up on.

of course there "should" only be 1 way. This is the point. we are here to learn and by having this challenge, I figured out a way to make it happen, then I saw Roy's way which lead me to list comprehension studys. After a bit more learning, My code will look very similar as well I am sure

Thanks Roy. Seeing your code last night got me reading about list comprehension. after a couple minutes of reading, I wrote this def check(x): low=min(x) hi=max(x) myList=[i for i in range(low,hi) if i not in x] return myList Looking back at yours, 1 minor thing I can improve. Now, to practice it until it sticks.
