We start the exercise with an empty variable called maximum that we want to assign a value to. The value should use the max() function to return the largest number in the set of arguments you provide to it.
For example, if we did my_var = max(1, 2, 3), the value stored in my_var would be 3!

I am not sure but I think 0+number represents octal numbers in python 2.x
The octal number system has 8 digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) and no more. The number 08 and 09 have no meaning. The representation of the numbers 8 and 9 in octal number are : 0o10 and 0o11.
In Python 3, the syntax for octals changed to this: 0o0 to 0o7
