Math Class static float min(float f1 , float f2)

• This method is available in java.lang package.
• This method is used to return the minimum one of both the given arguments or in other words this method returns the smallest value of the given two arguments.
• This is a static method so this method is accessible with the class name too.
• The return type of this method is float, it returns the smallest element from the given two arguments.
• This method accepts two arguments of float values.
• This method does not throw any exception.

Syntax:

```    public static float min(float f1, float f2){
}
```

Parameter(s): float f1, float f2 – two float values, in which we have to find the smallest/minimum value.

Return value:

The return type of this method is float, it returns the smallest/minimum value.

Note:

• If we pass "NaN" (Not a Number), it returns the same value i.e. "NaN".
• If we pass zero (-0 or 0), it returns the 0.
• If we pass the same values in both parameters, it returns the same value.

Java program to demonstrate example of min(float f1, float f2) method

```// Java program to demonstrate the example of
// min(float f1, float f2) method of Math Class.

public class MinFloatTypeMethod {
public static void main(String[] args) {
// declaring variables
float f1 = -0.0f;
float f2 = 0.0f;
float f3 = -0.6f;
float f4 = 124.58f;

// displaying the values
System.out.println("f1: " + f1);
System.out.println("f2: " + f2);
System.out.println("f3: " + f3);
System.out.println("f4: " + f4);

// Here , we will get (-0.0) because we are passing parameter
// whose value is (-0.0f,0.0f)
System.out.println("Math.min(f1,f2): " + Math.min(f1, f2));

// Here , we will get (0.0) and we are passing parameter
// whose value is (0.0f,124.58f)
System.out.println("Math.min(f2,f4): " + Math.min(f2, f4));
}
}
```

Output

```E:\Programs>javac MinFloatTypeMethod.java

E:\Programs>java MinFloatTypeMethod
f1: -0.0
f2: 0.0
f3: -0.6
f4: 124.58
Math.min(f1,f2): -0.0
Math.min(f2,f4): 0.0
```
