this solution has some problem
so try this updated one.

mid_num=0

def entervalue():
value=int(input("enter a number:"))
return value

def calcMiddle(v1,v2,v3):
middle=0;
print ("v1 = %d\nv2 = %d\nv3 = %d" %(v1,v2,v3))
if ((v1>v2 and v1<v3) or  (v1<v2 and v1>v3)):
middle=middle + v1
if ((v2<v3 and v2>v1) or (v2>v3 and v2<v1)):
middle=middle + v2
if((v3<v1 and v3>v2) or (v3>v1 and v3<v2)):
middle=middle + v3
return middle

def showresult():
print("\nthe middle number is:",mid_num)

print("\nInput 3 numbers")
mid_num=calcMiddle(entervalue(), entervalue(), entervalue())
result=showresult()
