The JavaScript Math min( ) Method is used to return the lowest-valued number passed in the method. The Math.min() method 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 method accepts a single parameter that can be used n number of times as mentioned above and described below:

  • value: These values are sent to math.min() method for finding the largest.

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

Below are examples of the Math min() Method.

Example 1: 

javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
    console.log("When positive numbers are passed"+
                    " as parameters: " + Math.min(10, 32, 2));
</script>


Output:

When  positive numbers are passed as parameters: 2

Example 2: When negative numbers are passed as parameters. 

javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
    console.log("Result : " + Math.min(-10, -32, -1));
</script>


Output:

Result : -32

Example 3: When no parameters are passed.

<script type="text/javascript">

</script>
