The Java Math min() method is used to return minimum number between the two arguments. The method can be overloaded and it can take int, double, float and long arguments. If either of the arguments is NaN, then the result is NaN.


public static int min(int arg1, int arg2) 
public static long min(long arg1, long arg2) 
public static float min(float arg1, float arg2) 
public static double min(double arg1, double arg2)  


arg1 Specify value to compare.
arg2 Specify value to compare.

Return Value

Returns the numerically minimum value.




In the below example, min() method is used to find out the minimum value between the two arguments.

public class MyClass {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  System.out.println(Math.min(50, 100)); 
  System.out.println(Math.min(5.5, 10.5));   

The output of the above code will be:
