# Python Program to Find Maximum and Minimum Number in List

Python program to find maximum and minimum number in a list or array; Through this tutorial, i am going to show you how to find largest or maximum and smallest or minimum number in python using for loop, min(), max() function.

## Python Program to Find Maximum and Minimum Number in List

• Python program to find maximum and minimum number in an array
• Find max and min in a list python using for loop
• Python program to find maximum and minimum number in list using sort method
• Python Program to find the position of min and max elements of a list using min() and max() function

### Python program to find maximum and minimum number in an array

• Get input list of element from user.
• Next, iterate the for loop and add the number in the list.
• Use the min and max functions to find the largest and smallest numbers from the list.
• Print the results.
```# Python Program to find Largest and Smallest Number in a List
NumList = []
Number = int(input("Please enter element length in list "))
for i in range(1, Number + 1):
value = int(input("Please enter the Value of %d Element : " %i))
NumList.append(value)
print("The Smallest Element in this List is : ", min(NumList))
print("The Largest Element in this List is : ", max(NumList))```

After executing the program, the output will be:

```How many element in list, Please enter num :-  5
Please enter the Value of 1 Element :  500
Please enter the Value of 2 Element :  653
Please enter the Value of 3 Element :  895
Please enter the Value of 4 Element :  565
Please enter the Value of 5 Element :  568

The Smallest Element in this List is :  500
The Largest Element in this List is :  895```

### Find max and min in a list python using for loop

• Get input list of element in list from user.
• Next, iterate the for loop and add the number in the list.
• Iterate for loop with list and use if statement to find the min and max number and their position in the list.
• Print the results.
```# Python Program to find Largest and Smallest Number in a List
# Python Program to find Largest and Smallest Number in a List
NumList = []
Number = int(input("How many element in list, Please enter num :- "))
for i in range(1, Number + 1):
value = int(input("Please enter the Value of %d Element : " %i))
NumList.append(value)
smallest = largest = NumList
for j in range(1, Number):
if(smallest > NumList[j]):
smallest = NumList[j]
min_position = j
if(largest < NumList[j]):
largest = NumList[j]
max_position = j
print("The Smallest Element in this List is : ", smallest)
print("The Index position of Smallest Element in this List is : ", min_position)
print("The Largest Element in this List is : ", largest)
print("The Index position of Largest Element in this List is : ", max_position)```

After executing the program, the output will be:

```How many element in list, Please enter num :-  5

Please enter the Value of 1 Element :  70
Please enter the Value of 2 Element :  90
Please enter the Value of 3 Element :  60
Please enter the Value of 4 Element :  80
Please enter the Value of 5 Element :  45
The Smallest Element in this List is :  45
The Index position of Smallest Element in this List is :  4

The Largest Element in this List is :  90
The Index position of Largest Element in this List is :  1```

### Python program to find maximum and minimum number in list using sort method

• Get input list of element from user.
• Next, iterate the for loop and add the number in the list.
• Use python sort method to find the smallest and largest number from the list.
• Print the results.
```# Python Program to find Largest and Smallest Number in a List
NumList = []
Number = int(input("How many element in list, please enter num :- "))
for i in range(1, Number + 1):
value = int(input("Please enter the Value of %d Element : " %i))
NumList.append(value)
NumList.sort()
print("The Smallest Element in this List is : ", NumList)
print("The Largest Element in this List is : ", NumList[Number - 1])```

After executing the program, the output will be:

```How many element in list, please enter num :-  5

Please enter the Value of 1 Element :  98
Please enter the Value of 2 Element :  45
Please enter the Value of 3 Element :  63
Please enter the Value of 4 Element :  78
Please enter the Value of 5 Element :  25

The Smallest Element in this List is :  25
The Largest Element in this List is :  98```

### Python Program to find the position of min and max elements of a list using min() and max() function

• Get input list of element from user.
• Next, iterate the for loop and add the number in the list.
• Use min and max function with index function to find the position of an element in the list.
• Print the results.
```# Python Program to find Largest and Smallest Number in a List
NumList = []
Number = int(input("How many element in list, Please enter num :- "))
for i in range(1, Number + 1):
value = int(input("Please enter the Value of %d Element : " %i))
NumList.append(value)
# min element's position/index
min = NumList.index(min(NumList))
# max element's position/index
max = NumList.index(max(NumList))
# printing the position/index of min and max elements
print("position of minimum element: ", min)
print("position of maximum element: ", max)```

After executing the program, the output will be:

```How many element in list, Please enter num :-  5

Please enter the Value of 1 Element :  5
Please enter the Value of 2 Element :  8
Please enter the Value of 3 Element :  9
Please enter the Value of 4 Element :  4
Please enter the Value of 5 Element :  2

position of minimum element:  4
position of maximum element:  2```
