#### Getting the Minimum Number in a Set

Math.min(8,"0x5",12,"44",8,23,77); //returns 5 var arr1 = [4,8,12,3,7,11]; Math.min.apply( Math, arr1 ); //returns 3 var arr2 = ["0x5",8,12,"4",8,23,77,"0x1F"]; Math.min.apply( Math, arr2 ); //returns 4

The `Math.min(item, item, ...)` method allows you to find the smallest number in a set. You can also apply an array object to the `.min()` method using `Math.min.apply(Math, array)`. This returns the smallest number in the array. The array can contain string representations of numbers, such as `"4"` and `"0x5B"`, but not character strings such as `"A"`. If the array contains character strings, the result will be `NaN`.
