# 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

**Solution:**

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.
