[en] By using some basic calculus of multiple integration, we provide an alternative expression of the integral $$ \int_{]a,b[^n} f(\mathbf{x},\min x_i,\max x_i) \, d\mathbf{x}, $$ in which the minimum and the maximum are replaced with two single variables. We demonstrate the usefulness of that expression in the computation of orness and andness average values of certain aggregation functions. By generalizing our result to Riemann-Stieltjes integrals, we also provide a method for the calculation of certain expected values and distribution functions.
