# Python: Generate the running maximum, minimum value of the elements of an iterable

## Python Itertools: Exercise-3 with Solution

Write a Python program to generate the maximum and minimum values of the elements of an iterable.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````from itertools import accumulate
def running_max_product(iters):
return accumulate(iters, max)
#List
result = running_max_product([1,3,2,7,9,8,10,11,12,14,11,12,7])
print("Running maximum value of a list:")
for i in result:
print(i)
#Tuple
result = running_max_product((1,3,3,7,9,8,10,9,8,14,11,15,7))
print("Running maximum value of a Tuple:")
for i in result:
print(i)
def running_min_product(iters):
return accumulate(iters, min)
#List
result = running_min_product([3,2,7,9,8,10,11,12,1,14,11,12,7])
print("Running minimum value of a list:")
for i in result:
print(i)
#Tuple
result = running_min_product((1,3,3,7,9,8,10,9,8,0,11,15,7))
print("Running minimum value of a Tuple:")
for i in result:
print(i)
```
```

Sample Output:

```Running maximum value of a list:
