# Python | Max/Min of tuple dictionary values

• Last Updated : 24 Oct, 2019

Sometimes, while working with data, we can have a problem in which we need to find the min/max of tuple elements that are received as values of dictionary. We may have a problem to get index wise min/max. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this particular problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using `tuple() + min()/max() + zip() + values()`
The combination of above methods can be used to perform this particular task. In this, we just
zip together equi index values extracted by `values()` using `zip()`. Then find min/max value using respective function. Finally result is returned as index wise max/min values as a tuple.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Max / Min of tuple dictionary values``# Using tuple() + min()/max() + zip() + values()`` ` `# Initializing dictionary``test_dict ``=` `{``'gfg'` `: (``5``, ``6``, ``1``), ``'is'` `: (``8``, ``3``, ``2``), ``'best'` `: (``1``, ``4``, ``9``)}`` ` `# printing original dictionary``print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict))`` ` `# Max / Min of tuple dictionary values``# Using tuple() + min()/max() + zip() + values()``res ``=` `tuple``(``max``(x) ``for` `x ``in` `zip``(``*``test_dict.values()))`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"The maximum values from each index is : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original dictionary is : {'is': (8, 3, 2), 'gfg': (5, 6, 1), 'best': (1, 4, 9)}
The maximum values from each index is : (8, 6, 9)
```

Method #2 : Using `tuple() + map() + values() + * operator`
This is yet another way in which this task can be performed. The difference is that we use `map()` instead of loop and `* operator` for zipping the values together.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Max / Min of tuple dictionary values``# Using tuple() + map() + values() + * operator`` ` `# Initializing dictionary``test_dict ``=` `{``'gfg'` `: (``5``, ``6``, ``1``), ``'is'` `: (``8``, ``3``, ``2``), ``'best'` `: (``1``, ``4``, ``9``)}`` ` `# printing original dictionary``print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict))`` ` `# Max / Min of tuple dictionary values``# Using tuple() + map() + values() + * operator``res ``=` `tuple``(``map``(``min``, ``*``test_dict.values()))`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"The minimum values from each index is : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original dictionary is : {'is': (8, 3, 2), 'gfg': (5, 6, 1), 'best': (1, 4, 9)}
The minimum values from each index is : (1, 3, 1)
```
