I have a txt file having rows and coulmns, i want to perform some operation on a specific coulmn starting from a specific line.

I want to select the data from 3rd coulmn from 7th line to end of clm. And find out the minimum and the maximum out of them.then calculate the difference between the min and max .
delay = max-min

and write "min" "max" "delay" to a txt file for further operation

awk 'NR==7{min=$3;max=$3}NR>7{if ($3>max){max=$3};if ($3<min){min=$3}}END{print "min: "min" max: "max}' file

I tried few options but it dosent work

awk 'NR==7{min=$3;max=$3} NR>7{if ($3>max){max=$3};if ($3<min){min=$3}}END delay=max-min {print "To: "min"  Tmax : "max"   delay= "delay }' seamount1.arr
