# Scala SortedMap min() method with example

The min() method is utilized to find the smallest element of the SortedMap.

Method Definition: def min: (A, B)

Return Type: It returns the smallest element of the SortedMap.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program of min() ` `// method ` `import` `scala.collection.immutable.SortedMap ` ` `  ` `  `// Creating object ` `object` `GfG ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String]) ` `    ``{ ` `     `  `        ``// Creating SortedMap ` `        ``val` `m``1` `=` `SortedMap(``"geeks"` `-``>` `5``, ``"for"` `-``>` `3``, ``"cs"` `-``>` `2``) ` `         `  `        ``// Applying min method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `m``1``.min ` `         `  `        ``// Displays output ` `        ``println(result) ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```(cs, 2)
```

As we can see in above example cs is the smallest element in the SortedMap.
Example #2:

 `// Scala program of min() ` `// method ` `import` `scala.collection.immutable.SortedMap ` ` `  ` `  `// Creating object ` `object` `GfG ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String]) ` `    ``{ ` `     `  `        ``// Creating SortedMap ` `        ``val` `m``1` `=` `SortedMap(``"geeks"` `-``>` `5``, ``"for"` `-``>` `3``, ``"for"` `-``>` `6``) ` `         `  `        ``// Applying min method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `m``1``.min ` `         `  `        ``// Displays output ` `        ``println(result) ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```(for, 6)
```
