Python: Find the maximum and minimum values in a given list within specified index range

Python List: Exercise - 151 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the maximum and minimum values in a given list within specified index range.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def reverse_list_of_lists(nums,lr,hr):
    temp = []
    for idx, el in enumerate(nums):
        if idx >= lr and idx < hr:
            temp.append(el)
    result_max = max(temp) 
    result_min = min(temp) 
    return result_max, result_min
nums = [4,3,0,5,3,0,2,3,4,2,4,3,5]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("\nIndex range:")
lr = 3
hr = 8
print(lr,"to",hr)
print("\nMaximum and minimum values of the said given list within index range:")
print(reverse_list_of_lists(nums,lr,hr))

Sample Output:

Original list:
[4, 3, 0, 5, 3, 0, 2, 3, 4, 2, 4, 3, 5]

Index range:
3 to 8

Maximum and minimum values of the said given list within index range:
(5, 0)

Python: Tips of the Day

Floor Division:

When we speak of division we normally mean (/) float division operator, this will give a precise result in float format with decimals.

For a rounded integer result there is (//) floor division operator in Python. Floor division will only give integer results that are round numbers.

print(1000 // 300)
print(1000 / 300)

Output:

3
3.3333333333333335
