Question: Find maximum and minimum number providing no of inputs /* Find maximum and minimum */
/* Program Coded By Chetan Thapa Magar */

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<math.h>
int max(int a[], int, int);
int min(int b[], int, int);
void main()

int i, n, a, big, small;
printf("Enter how many numbers:\t");
scanf("%d", &n);
printf("\nEnter the number one by one:\n");
for(i=0; i<n; i++)
scanf("%d", &a[i]);
big=a;
small=a[n-1];
printf("\nThe maximum value is %d", max(a, n, big));
printf("\nThe minimum value is %d", min(a, n, small));
getch();
}

int max(int a[], int n, int big)
{
if(n==0)
return big;
else
n--;
if(a[n]>big)
big=a[n];
return(max(a,n,big));
}
int min(int a[], int n, int small)
{
if(n==0)
return small;
else
n--;
if(a[n]<small)
small=a[n];
return min(a, n, small);
}

Output / Execution:

Enter how many numbers: 5
Enter the numbers one by one

14
56
34
63
45

The maximum value is 63
The minimum value is 14
