# Find minimum and maximum element in an array gfg solution Given an array A of size N of integers. Your task is to find the minimum and maximum element in the array.

This question to find minimum and maximum element in an array is taken from GeeksforGeeks platform .

## Example 1:

Input:

``````N = 6
A[] = {3, 2, 1, 56, 10000, 167}
Output:
min = 1, max =  10000``````

## Example 2:

Input:

``````N = 5
A[]  = {1, 345, 234, 21, 56789}
Output:
min = 1, max = 56789``````

You don’t need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function getMinMax() which takes the array A[] and its size as inputs and returns the minimum and maximum element of the array.

Expected Time Complexity: O(N)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

## Solution in Java

``````//{ Driver Code Starts
//Initial Template for Java
