Among Us Voting System: HALP AGAIN
Smart0ne (729)


Let's say I have the following code:

votes = {"red":2,"yellow":1,"green":0,"cyan":2,"blue":1,"magenta":0}

It's a dictionary named "votes". Now I want a function that can return the key names of the values that have the maximum value. If this is unclear, the function should return

ejected = ["red","cyan"]

since "red" and "cyan" have the biggest values in the dictionary. Can someone help me implement this?

Thanks in advance!

As long as everything works that is great, but I originally looped through twice before I refactored.

votes = {"red":2,"yellow":1,"green":0,"cyan":2,"blue":1,"magenta":0}

def findImpostors(votes):
	# this will created the ejected list
	ejected = []

	# get the maximum value in the list of values of the dictionary
	maximum = max(votes.values())

	# this will take care of any repeating numbers (i.e. the two with 2 votes)
	for color, voteCount in votes.items():
		# if their vote count matches the max
		if voteCount == maximum:
			# they're getting ejected, fool!

	return ejected

ejected = findImpostors(votes)
