I am creating a program that sorts the user's input in increasing and decreasing order... I have tried the sorted() function but it would only sort 1 number.

What I have tried:

list=input("Enter your list:")
print("Unsorted:", list.split())

print("Sorted Ascending Order:")
print sorted(a)

print("Sorted Descending Order:")
print sorted(a, reverse=True)

In my code, I tried to sort 35,5 and 4 but the result would be like this:

The following program (Python 3)
s = input()
lnum = list(map(int, s.split()))

print("Unsorted:", lnum)

print("Sorted Ascending Order:")
print (sorted(lnum))

print("Sorted Descending Order:")
print(sorted(lnum, reverse=True))

executes this way
35 5 4                                                                                                                                                     
Unsorted: [35, 5, 4]
