Math.min( ) In JavaScript

The Math.min() function is used to return the lowest-valued number passed in the function. The Math.min() function returns NaN if any parameter isn’t a number and can’t be converted into one. The min() is a static method of Math, therefore, it is always used as Math.min(), rather than as a method of a Math object created.

Syntax:

Math.min(value1, value2, ...)

Parameters: This function accepts Value1,Value2 Values sent to math.min() function for finding the lowest-valued number.

Return Value: The Math.min() function returns the smallest of the given numbers.

Examples:

Input  : Math.min(10, 32, 2)
Output : 2
     
Input  : Math.min(-10, -32, -1)
Output : -32

Input  : Math.min()
Output : -Infinity


Input  : Math.min(10,2,NaN)
Output : NaN
