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

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:
