Help combining code

I have written some code that will find the average then the middle number and then the most used number of a user entered list of numbers. I have the code as separate programs and they all work fine separately. But I am trying to put them together as one. I have the average working fine but I can not get the middle and most to print. Also after the numbers have been entered I want it to save the list that is entered in to a file then recall it when prompted. I am completely lost. I am just learning this and I donít want the answer given to me I would like someone to look at my code and explain how I could do what I want. This is some of my code


if item == 'yes':
##f = open("amm.dat", "r")
print 'The Mean average is:', sum/count
print 'The Mode is:', () #this is here to give me a answer space
print 'The Median is:', m #same here
if item == 'no':
print 'Thank you Good bye'
# calculates mode
def mode(num):
if not num:
return None
num = {}
for item in num:
count = num.get(item, 0)
num[item] = count + 1
result = [ (count, item) for item, count in num.items() ]
result.sort()
result.reverse()
maxcount = result[0][0]
modes = [ item for count, item in result if count == maxcount ]

# calculates median
def median(s):
i = len(s)
if i%2:
return (s[i/2]+s[(i/2)+1])/2.0
return s[i/2]
i = [i for i in (number) if i > median(number/2)]

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  = count + 1
  2.      result = [ (count, item) for item, count in num.items() ]
  3.      result.sort()
  4.      result.reverse()
  5.      maxcount = result[0][0]
  6.      modes = [ item for count, item in result if count == maxcount ]
  7.  
  8. # calculates median   
  9. def median(s):
  10.     i = len(s)
  11.     if i%2:
  12.         return (s[i/2]+s[(i/2)+1])/2.0
  13.     return s[i/2] 
  14.     i = [i for i in (number) if i > median(number/2)]
Please use code tags.

I see one problem here:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. def mode(num):
  2.      if not num:
  3.          return None
  4.      num = {}
  5.      for item in num:
num is the argument. You are assigning num to an empty dictionary, then iterating on the empty dictionary. To print the individual results, use the string formatting operator:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ....print 'The Mean average is: %.2f', thesum/count # float, 2 decimal places
  2.     print 'The Mode is: %2f', mode(num)
  3.     print 'The Median is: %2f', median(s)
You must return a calculation result in functions mode() and median() with the return statement. Do not use sum for a variable name because it will mask the built-in Python function sum().

To print the results and output to a file:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. f = open('output.txt', 'w')
  2. output = 'The Mean average is: %.2f\nThe Mode is: %2f\nThe Median is: %2f' % \
  3.          (sum/count, mode(num), median(s))
  4. print output
  5. f.write(output)
  6. f.close()

If you want to be able to combine and reuse code you should use functions and classes. Make sure you document any assumptions.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. # your function works fine and can be used in any code as long as your assumptions are met
  2. def median(s):
  3.     """
  4.     median: works fine as long as  s is tuple or list of numbers sorted numbers
  5.     """
  6.     i = len(s)
  7.     if i%2:
  8.         return (s[i/2]+s[(i/2)+1])/2.0
  9.     return s[i/2]
