# Minimum and Maximum functions

Minimum and Maximum functions can be very useful at certain times too.

Minimum function in Python can be utilized by using the *min() *function. This function as it sounds, returns the minimum character. If we use this for number, we will be outputted with the smallest number and if we use this for strings, we will be outputted by the shortest string.

Maximum function works just the same as the minimum function values except, it returns the maximum values in place of the minimum values.
