# Get the max and min value from a Collection

`static<T extends Object & Comparable<? super T>>T max(Collection<? extends T> coll)`
Returns the maximum element of the given collection, according to the natural ordering of its elements.
`static<T> T max(Collection<? extends T> coll, Comparator<? super T> comp)`
Returns the maximum element of the given collection, according to the order induced by the specified comparator.
`static<T extends Object & Comparable<? super T>>T min(Collection<? extends T> coll)`
Returns the minimum element of the given collection, according to the natural ordering of its elements.
`static<T> T min(Collection<? extends T> coll, Comparator<? super T> comp)`
Returns the minimum element of the given collection, according to the order induced by the specified comparator.

The output:

``````
List sorted in reverse: [20, 8, -8, -20]
List shuffled: [-20, 20, -8, 8]
Minimum: -20
Maximum: 20
