Syntax

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

Parameters

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

Return Value

Example:

In the example below, 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));   
 }
}
