# Java program to find maximum and minimum number without using array

Let’s learn java program to find maximum and minimum number without using array.

## Java program to find maximum and minimum number without using array

In the below example we are using Integer.MAX_VALUE and Integer.MIN_VALUE to find maximum value and minimum number without using array. Here’s the java program.

```import java.util.Scanner;
public class MaximumMinimumWithoutArray
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.println("Please enter total number: ");
int numbers = sc.nextInt();
int maximum = Integer.MIN_VALUE;
int minimum = Integer.MAX_VALUE;
System.out.println("Please enter " + numbers + " numbers.");
for(int a = 0; a < numbers; a++)
{
int current = sc.nextInt();
if(current > maximum)
{
maximum = current;
}
if(current < minimum)
{
minimum = current;
}
}
System.out.println("largest of " + numbers + " numbers is: " + maximum);
System.out.println("smallest of " + numbers + " numbers is: " + minimum);
sc.close();
}
}
```

Output:

Please enter total number:
5
Please enter 5 numbers.
96
65
86
26
41
largest of 5 numbers is: 96
smallest of 5 numbers is: 26
