# Python | Maximum and Minimum in a Set

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.

## Python3

 `# 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

## Python3

 `# 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`

Time complexity: O(n)
Auxiliary space: O(n), n is number of elements in set.
