Minimum Maximum Calculator

Arranging a dataset is not an easy task that almost every mathematics student has to perform. It is a hectic task because a minor mistake can change the values for the minimum and maximum of that dataset. It will ultimately affect other tasks that you will do on that dataset like finding range.

To get the task done with 100% accuracy, you should use this minimum-maximum calculator. This online calculator has been designed to arrange the dataset automatically and show the minimum and maximum values. You can get these values from this maths calculator just by inserting the entries of the dataset.

What is the Maximum?

Every dataset involves multiple numbers with greater and smaller values. The maximum of a dataset is the largest value of that set of numbers. In Mathematics, it is denoted by writing “max” beside the number showing this value.

For example, if we have a dataset of 3,8,9 and 4, then the maximum of this dataset is “9”. The process becomes difficult when you have multiple numbers to find the maximum value. It may be confusing as well as hard to arrange the numbers to find this value.

What is the Minimum?

The minimum is the opposite of the maximum value of the dataset. It represents the smallest number of any dataset that gives the lower limit. In Mathematics, it is denoted by writing “min” just beside the number showing this value.

For example, if we have a dataset of 3,8,9, and 4, then the minimum value will be “3”. Similarly, we can find the minimum of a small dataset easily but it will be hard when dealing with a dataset having multiple numbers.

How to find the Maximum and Minimum?

The simplest approach to finding the maximum and minimum of any dataset is by arranging the numbers. You can arrange the numbers in ascending or descending order to find the minimum and maximum values. It will be pretty simple to find these values after arrangement because the numbers at the corners of the dataset will be minimum and maximum.


Example 1:

Find the minimum and maximum of the following dataset:

2, 6, 8, 5, 9, 10, 32, 12, 23, 5, 11, 3, 18	


First of all, we have to arrange the numbers in a specific order. For this solution, let us arrange them in ascending order.

= 2, 3, 5, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 18, 23, 32	

Now, we can easily find the minimum and maximum of this dataset.

Minimum = min = 2	
Maximum = max = 32	

How to use the Maximum and Minimum Calculator?

You can use this online tool of Calculator’s Bag to automate this calculation and quickly find these values. Just follow this single step to use it for your tasks.

  • Input all values of the dataset in the number insertion box.
  • This calculator will automatically sort the dataset in order and show you the values of minimum and maximum.

FAQ | Minimum Maximum Calculator

How do you find the maximum value?

By arranging the numbers in ascending order, we can find the maximum value of a dataset.

What is the significance of the maximum and minimum values?

The minimum and maximum values give the range of a dataset. We can also say that it gives the upper and lower limits of the dataset.

What is a minimum or maximum in math?

In mathematics, the minimum is the smallest number of a dataset while the maximum is the largest number of the same dataset.

What is the difference between the maximum and minimum called?

The difference between the maximum and minimum is called the range of that dataset or function.

What is the middle of minimum and maximum?

The middle of the minimum and maximum is called the median of the dataset.
