## Find Minimum of Two Numbers in Kotlin

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to find the minimum of two numbers using Kotlin.

Finding the minimum of two numbers is a common task in programming. In Kotlin, you can achieve this by using a simple comparison between the given two numbers, and using this comparison expression as a condition in the if-else construct.

To compare the given two numbers, we can use Less-than comparison operator.

## Example

### Finding Minimum of Two Numbers

We’ll start with an example of finding the minimum of two numbers.

In this example, the `findMinimum()`

function compares two numbers and returns the smallest of the two.

**Kotlin Program**

```
// Function to find minimum of two numbers
fun findMinimum(a: Int, b: Int): Int {
if (a < b) {
return a
} else {
return b
}
}
fun main() {
val number1 = 8
val number2 = 12
val minimum = findMinimum(number1, number2)
println("Minimum of $number1 and $number2 is: $minimum")
}
```

**Output**

`Minimum of 8 and 12 is: 12`

## Summary

In this Kotlin Tutorial, we learned how to find the minimum of given two numbers in Kotlin, using less than comparison operator, with the help of example programs.
