Description

The java.lang.StrictMath.min(long a, long b) method returns the smaller of two long values. That is, the result is the argument closer to the value of Long.MIN_VALUE. If the arguments have the same value, the result is that same value.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.StrictMath.min() method

public static long min(long a, long b)

  • a − This is the long value.

  • b − This is another long value.

Return Value

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.lang.StrictMath.min() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class StrictMathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      long l1 = 1327865 , l2 = 6787544, l3 = -297417;
   
      // both positive values
      double minValue = StrictMath.min(l1, l2); 
      System.out.println("StrictMath.min(1327865, 6787544) : " + minValue);

      // one positive and one negative value
      minValue = StrictMath.min(l1, l3); 
      System.out.println("StrictMath.min(1327865, -297417) : " + minValue);    
   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

StrictMath.min(1327865, 6787544) : 1327865.0
StrictMath.min(1327865, -297417) : -297417.0
