Begin17. Three points \(A, B, C\) are given on the number axis. Find the lengths of the segments \(AC\) and \(BC\) and their sum.

**Solution in Python 3:**

import random

A,C,B = sorted(random.sample(range(-10, 10), 3))

print("A: ", A)

print("B: ", B)

print("C: ", C)

AC = abs(A-C)

BC = abs(B-C)

AC_BC = AC + BC

AB = abs(A-B)

print("AC: ", AC)

print("BC: ", BC)

print("AC + BC: ", AC_BC)

print("AB: ", AB)

**Solution in C++:**

#include <iostream>

#include <cmath>

using namespace std;

int main(){

double a,b,c,ac,bc,s;

cout << "Enter the coordinate of a: ";

cin >> a;

cout << "Enter the coordinate of b: ";

cin >> b;

cout << "Enter the coordinate of c: ";

cin >> c;

ac = abs(a-c);

bc = abs(b-c);

s = ac+bc;

cout << "Length of AC: " << ac << endl;

cout << "Length of BC: " << bc << endl;

cout << "Sum of the lengths of AC and BC: " << s;

return 0;
