## 1.5 Minimum and Maximum

The minimum and maximum values are also useful pieces of information for us to know and, like the median, are most easily determined by first listing the data in order from smallest to largest. Consider again the $$n=5$$ income values we considered earlier, listed in order as $1170, 1740, 6940, 25000, 66300.$

The minimum and maximum values are then 1170 and 66300 respectively.
