# Minimum of three numbers

• 7
• Locked
"Don't compare me with others!" she cried. But comparisons are unavoidable in this world. Especially in programming. Let's take three numbers, look at them, and figure out which one is the smallest. We'll do this using a program, more precisely, a special min method that calculates which number is smaller than the other two.

I solved the task with 2x Math.min() method and it works :)

i solved the task creating another method min(int a, int b). You can create a method who compare the values of "a" and "b" to see which of them is the minimum. After you can declare a new variable on method min(x, x,x) referenced to the previus method "m2 = min(x,x)" and do the comparation

I get the output 1, -3, 3, 5 which should be correct? Or am I misunderstanding something?

I just have a question about my code, it works and has passed the test criteria. However, when I attempted to utilize an "else" statement at the end of the "if" statement, I kept getting an error " int minimum may not have been initialized" and the value of the first output statement displayed the maximum value, but when I added the third "if" statement, the error went away and the program ran perfectly. why is that? what am I not understanding within the context of "if/else" statements?

This took me waaaay longer than it should have. Make sure you're using "<=" and not only "<". Have fun!

Is the output suppose to be 1, -3, 3, & 5? If so, I have the correct output, but it is not accepting it as a right answer. Is this an error?
