# CoffeeScript Math - min()

## Description

The min() method accepts a set of numbers and returns the minimum value among the given numbers. On calling this method without passing arguments it returns +Infinity.

## Syntax

Given below is the syntax of min() method of JavaScript. We can use the same method in the CoffeeScript code.

```Math.min ( x )
```

## Example

The following example demonstrates the usage of the min() method in CoffeeScript. Save this code in a file with name math_min.coffee.

```value = Math.min 10, 20, -1, 100
console.log "The min value among (10, 20, -1, 100) is : " + value

value = Math.min -1, -3, -40
console.log "The min value among (-1, -3, -40) is : " + value

value = Math.min 0, -1
console.log "The min value among (0, -1) is : " + value
```

Open the command prompt and compile the .coffee file as shown below.

```c:\> coffee -c math_min.coffee
```

On compiling, it gives you the following JavaScript.

```// Generated by CoffeeScript 1.10.0
(function() {
var value;

value = Math.min(10, 20, -1, 100);

console.log("The min value among (10, 20, -1, 100) is : " + value);

value = Math.min(-1, -3, -40);

console.log("The min value among (-1, -3, -40) is : " + value);

value = Math.min(0, -1);

console.log("The min value among (0, -1) is : " + value);

}).call(this);
```

Now, open the command prompt again, and run the CoffeeScript file as shown below.

```c:\> coffee math_max.coffee
```

On executing, the CoffeeScript file produces the following output.

```The min value among (10, 20, -1, 100) is : -1
The min value among (-1, -3, -40) is : -40
The min value among (0, -1) is : -1
