Python Question

I'm traing to compare the components of an tuple in Python to find bigest and the smallest, but my code just returns the two latest components of the touple, and I have no idea why:

`numbers="4 5 29 54 4 0 -214 542 -64 1 -3 6 -6"`

numbers2=numbers.split()

numbers2=tuple(numbers2)

i=0

gran=numbers2[0]

petit=numbers2[0]

for i in range (len(numbers2)):

if numbers2[i]>gran:

gran=numbers2[i]

print(gran)

j=0

for j in range (len(numbers2)):

if numbers[j]<petit:

petit=numbers2[j]

print(petit)

resultat= gran+" "+petit

print(resultat)

I got "6 -6" in return. Any help? Thanks

Convert your splitted string into integers before turning it into a tuple.

```
numbers="4 5 29 54 4 0 -214 542 -64 1 -3 6 -6"
numbers2=[int(x) for x in numbers.split()]
numbers2=tuple(numbers2)
...
```

You can also merge those two operations into a single line.

```
numbers="4 5 29 54 4 0 -214 542 -64 1 -3 6 -6"
numbers2=tuple([int(x) for x in numbers.split()])
...
```
