This paper proposes two ratio and product-type estimators using transformation based on known minimum and maximum values of auxiliary variable. The biases and mean squared errors of the suggested estimators are obtained under large sample approximation. Conditions are obtained under which the suggested estimators are superior to the conventional unbiased estimator, usual ratio and product estimators of population mean. The superiority of the proposed estimators are also established through some natural population data sets
