I have a variable that contains numeric values separated by a comma, e.g. Values = "1, 7, 5". I want to figure out which value within that variable is the lowest and highest. The math.min and math.max functions seem most appropriate except that they wont accept a variable as an argument. Is this possible with the built in math functions or do I need to parse the variable and compare values with tonumber()?
