Return : Return minimum value from given matrix

Example #1 :
In this example we can see that we are able to get the minimum value from a given matrix with the help of method `matrix.min()`.

 `# import the important module in python``import` `numpy as np``         ` `# make matrix with numpy``gfg ``=` `np.matrix(``'[64, 1; 12, 3]'``)``         ` `# applying matrix.min() method``geeks ``=` `gfg.``min``()``   ` `print``(geeks)`
Output:
```1
```

Example #2 :

 `# import the important module in python``import` `numpy as np``         ` `# make a matrix with numpy``gfg ``=` `np.matrix(``'[1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6; 7, 8, -9]'``)``         ` `# applying matrix.min() method``geeks ``=` `gfg.``min``()``   ` `print``(geeks)`
Output:
```-9
```
