``````# Owner : TutorialsInhand Author : Devjeet Roy

marks=[78,56,98,39,55,91,72]

max_number =  0
min_number = 100

for i in marks:
if i > max_number:
max_number = i
if i < min_number:
min_number = i

print("Highest marks:",max_number)
print("Lowest marks:", min_number)``````

``````PS C:\Users\DEVJEET\Desktop\tutorialsInHand> python code.py
Highest marks: 98
Lowest marks: 39``````

### Few important tips about the program

1. We assign 0 to the max_number and 100 to the min_number variables. As the iteration continues they continuously compare and reassign themselves accordingly.

2. Python provides max() and min() methods which takes the name of the list as its argument and returns the maximum and minimum number from within a list.
