## math.MinInt16 Constant

The MinInt16 constant is an inbuilt constant of the math package which is used to get the lowest (minimum) value that can be represented by an int16.

The value of math.MinInt16 constants is -1 << 15 or -32768.

Syntax:

```int math.MinInt16
```

Parameter(s):

• None

Return Value:

The return type of math.MinInt16 constant is int, it returns the lowest (minimum) value that can be represented by an int16.

Example 1:

```// Golang program to demonstrate the
// example of math.MinInt16 Constant

package main

import (
"fmt"
"math"
)

func main() {
fmt.Printf("Type of math.MinInt16 is %T\n", math.MinInt16)
fmt.Println("Value of math.MinInt16:", math.MinInt16)
}
```

Output:

```Type of math.MinInt16 is int
Value of math.MinInt16: -32768
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we imported the math package to use the math.MinInt16 constant, then printed the type and value of the math.MinInt16 constant.

Example 2:

```// Golang program to demonstrate the
// example of math.MinInt16 Constant

package main

import (
"fmt"
"math"
)

// creating function to
// return the value of MinInt16.
func getMinInt16() int {
return math.MinInt16
}

func main() {
fmt.Println("Value of math.MinInt16:", getMinInt16())
}
```

Output:

```Value of math.MinInt16: -32768
```
