# Min

The Min method is the opposite of the Max operator. It finds and returns the smallest, based on the type of array or list.

# Basic example

Live example: https://dotnetfiddle.net/omUOQX

var scores = new[] { 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 };

var min = scores.Min();

// output: 2

# Min with objects

You can also apply the Min operation of a list of complex objects if need be.

Live example: https://dotnetfiddle.net/0xGnDb

var people = new[]
                 {
                     new
                         {
                             Name = "Vernon",
                             Age = 21

                         },
                     new
                         {
                             Name = "Carrie",
                             Age = 24
                         },
                     new
                         {
                             Name = "Joanna",
                             Age = 20
                         }
                 };

var minAge = people.Min(arg => arg.Age);

// output: 20
