# Python: Largest and smallest digit of a given number

## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-145 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the largest and smallest digits of a given number.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def Largest_Smallest_digit(n):
largest_digit = 0
smallest_digit = 9
while (n):
digit = n % 10
# largest digit
largest_digit = max(digit, largest_digit)
# smallest digit
smallest_digit = min(digit, smallest_digit)
n = n // 10
return largest_digit, smallest_digit
n = 9387422
print("Original Number:", n)
result = Largest_Smallest_digit(n)
print("Largest Digit of the said number:", result)
print("Smallest Digit of the said number:", result)
n = 500
print("\nOriginal Number:", n)
result = Largest_Smallest_digit(n)
print("Largest Digit of the said number:", result)
print("Smallest Digit of the said number:", result)
n = 231548
print("\nOriginal Number:", n)
result = Largest_Smallest_digit(n)
print("Largest Digit of the said number:", result)
print("Smallest Digit of the said number:", result)
``````

Sample Output:

```Original Number: 9387422
Largest Digit of the said number: 9
Smallest Digit of the said number: 2

Original Number: 500
Largest Digit of the said number: 5
Smallest Digit of the said number: 0

Original Number: 231548
Largest Digit of the said number: 8
Smallest Digit of the said number: 1
```
