Suppose we have a collection of numbers (+ve, -ve, fractional) and we need to find out the MAX and MIN from that. The below code will help to do so

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{

List<double> lstNumbers = new List<double>() { 1, 2.06, 34, -4, 5.90, 61.9, 7.8, 8, 9, 18.0,23.7 };
double minNum = lstNumbers.OrderBy(o => o).Take(1).Single();
double maxNum = lstNumbers.OrderByDescending(o => o).Take(1).Single();
Console.WriteLine("Min = {0} , Max = {1}", minNum, maxNum);
Console.ReadKey(true);
}
}
}


Here we are using Using Take and Single Extension methods of Enumerable Class that resides under the namespace System.Linq to accomplish the operation.

Hope this will be helpful.
