How do you find the largest and smallest number in an unsorted integer array?

Python is very simple language to do these kind of operations. Thats why its using in Machine Learning processes

input = [10,20,30,11,10]

print(max(input))
print(min(input))
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And, the output is

30
10
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I'm not a python guy, but wouldn't this scan the entire array twice? For a large array that would be wasteful. It's probably better to design a single loop and track the min and max values, right?
