Checks if the given number falls within the given range.

  • Use arithmetic comparison to check if the given number is in the specified range.
  • If the second parameter, end, is not specified, the range is considered to be from 0 to start.
def in_range(n, start, end = 0):
  return start <= n <= end if end >= start else end <= n <= start
in_range(3, 2, 5) # True
in_range(3, 4) # True
in_range(2, 3, 5) # False
in_range(3, 2) # False
