C++ min and max

I have wrote a code in C++ inserting 10 values and printing the min and max. But when I insert a number with many digits (for example 1000000000000), it won't continue and displays a random number as both min and max. Why is that happening???

Intergers have limits you need a different data type if you have enough digits. https://www.tutorialspoint.com/cplusplus/cpp_data_types.htm

Without code, might be an overflow if it always displays the same random number with the same large insert. Got a CodePlayground link?

@Manual...I've been sitting with this in my clipboard because I'm having some trouble with both of yours's code: ============== Integers are 4 bytes on this platform. 4 bytes = 32 bits = 2^32 = 4294967296. You're using signed integers, so divide that in half: 2,147,483,648..... trails off to try code.... ================== When I enter 10000000000, as in the question statement (and regardless of any other values, even incomplete input), the min/max ceilings to integer (not long) max and all the other cins appear to be nonfunctional. Just FYI.

Yep, that's what I was fiddling with: int i; long l; unsigned long long ull; cout << sizeof those 4, 4, 8 Anyway, learned something .... longs and ints not different here. Thanks @Manual.

Christos 10000000000 is too large to be an interger use a template or decimal instead of int.

@Kirk You're welcome!

I adjusted the range try this https://code.sololearn.com/cp2qYDcwUFmO/?ref=app

@Christos Please do not forget to give the checkmark, to the one who helped you.

Try the update long long - bigger range

share your code [ +insert ] -add code | | \/

#include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int a,min,max; cin >> a; max=a; min=a; for (int x=2; x<=10; x++) { cin >> a; if (a<min) { min=a; } if (a>max) { max=a; } } cout << "The minimum is " << min << endl << "The maximum is " << max; }

If you run it on Playground it shows the same result...

Manual Thanks for the tip, but in math this is an interger too. In coding is different, right??

Manual Thanks man I didn't know there was a limit in each data type... :-)

You're welcome!😸

did you try the new version? edit I tried it seems like the limit was reached...
