Find minimum of numbers with Math min

This is an example of how to find the minimum of numbers using the Math Class. The class Math contains methods for performing basic numeric operations such as the elementary exponential, logarithm, square root, and trigonometric functions. Finding the minimum of two numbers implies that you should:

  • Use the min(double a, double b), min(float a, float b), min(int a, int b), min(long a, long b) API methods of Math according to the types of the arguments to get the lower of the two values,

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:  
 

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.core;

public class FindMinimumOfNumbersWithMathMin {
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		
		// minimum of two integers
		System.out.println(Math.min(10,50));
		 
		// minimum of two float values
		System.out.println(Math.min(21.64f,56.8f));
		 
		// minimum of two double values
		System.out.println(Math.min(15.94,23.15));
		 
		// minimum of two long values
		System.out.println(Math.min(1234L,9876L));
		
	}

}

Output:

10
21.64
15.94
1234
