# Python | Maximum and Minimum in a Set

• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 28 Dec, 2017

In this article, we will learn how to get the maximum and minimum element in a set in Python, using the built-in functions of Python.
Examples:

```Input : set = ([8, 16, 24, 1, 25, 3, 10, 65, 55])
Output : max is 65

Input : set = ([4, 12, 10, 9, 4, 13])
Output : min is 4
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

max() in a Set

The built-in function max() in Python is used to get the maximum of all the elements in a set.

 `# Python code to get the maximum element from a set``def` `MAX``(sets):``    ``return` `(``max``(sets))``     ` `# Driver Code``sets ``=` `set``([``8``, ``16``, ``24``, ``1``, ``25``, ``3``, ``10``, ``65``, ``55``])``print``(``MAX``(sets))`

Output:

```65
```

min() in a Set

 `# Python code to get the minimum element from a set``def` `MIN``(sets):``    ``return` `(``min``(sets))``     ` `# Driver Code``sets ``=` `set``([``4``, ``12``, ``10``, ``9``, ``4``, ``13``])``print``(``MIN``(sets))`

Output:

```4
```
