# Scala Queue min() method with example

The min() method is utilized to return the smallest element of the queue.
Method Definition: def min: A Return Type: It returns the smallest element of the queue.
Example #1:
 `// Scala program of min()  ``// method  ``  ` `// Import Queue   ``import` `scala.collection.mutable.``_``  ` `// Creating object  ``object` `GfG  ``{  ``  ` `    ``// Main method  ``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ``    ``{  ``      ` `        ``// Creating a queue  ``        ``val` `q``1` `=` `Queue(``1``, ``3``, ``2``, ``7``, ``6``, ``5``)  ``          ` `        ``// Print the queue ``        ``println(q``1``) ``          ` `        ``// Applying min method  ``        ``val` `result ``=` `q``1``.min ``          ` `        ``// Display output ``        ``print(``"The smallest element of the queue: "` `+ result) ``          ` `    ``}  ``}  `

Output:
```Queue(1, 3, 2, 7, 6, 5)
The smallest element of the queue: 1
```
Example #2:
 `// Scala program of min()  ``// method  ``  ` `// Import Queue   ``import` `scala.collection.mutable.``_``  ` `// Creating object  ``object` `GfG  ``{  ``  ` `    ``// Main method  ``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ``    ``{  ``      ` `        ``// Creating a queue  ``        ``val` `q``1` `=` `Queue(``5``, ``11``, ``23``, ``72``, ``14``, ``21``, ``118``)  ``          ` `        ``// Print the queue ``        ``println(q``1``) ``          ` `        ``// Applying min method  ``        ``val` `result ``=` `q``1``.min ``          ` `        ``// Display output ``        ``print(``"The smallest element of the queue: "` `+ result) ``          ` `    ``}  ``}  `

Output:
```Queue(5, 11, 23, 72, 14, 21, 118)
The smallest element of the queue: 5
