The static function Math.min()
returns the lowest-valued number passed into it, or NaN
if any parameter isn't a number and can't be converted into one.

Math.min() Math.min(value0) Math.min(value0, value1) Math.min(value0, value1, /* … ,*/ valueN)
value1
, …, valueN
Zero or more numbers among which the lowest value will be selected and returned.
This finds the min of x
and y
and assigns it to z
:
const x = 10, y = -20; const z = Math.min(x, y);
Math.min()
is often used to clip a value so that it is always less than or equal to a boundary. For instance, this
let x = f(foo); if (x > boundary) { x = boundary; }
may be written as this
const x = Math.min(f(foo), boundary);
Math.max()
can be used in a similar way to clip a value at the other end.
