The behavior of min() (and probably max and other related functions) changes depending on the order of the parameters it sorts.

In the image, I sorted two tuples, coordinate points, with the same Y value and different X values. When the X values were in increasing order, finding the minimum x value and minimum y value were the same. However if the list was reversed, finding the minimum x and y values in the list provided different results.
