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, -36.4, -4, 5.90, 618.9, 79.8, 8, 9, 18.0,23.7 };		int itemsCount = lstNumbers.Count;		var sortedList = lstNumbers.OrderBy(o => o).ToList();		double minNum =  sortedList[0];		double maxNum = sortedList[itemsCount -1];		Console.WriteLine("Min = {0} , Max = {1}", minNum, maxNum); 		Console.ReadKey(true);        }    }} `

Here we are using indexing technique after sorting to accomplish the operation.

Hope this will be helpful.
