# Get Minimum Value From Array PHP

PHP get or find min or minimum or lowest value from array; Through this tutorial, i am going to show you how to find or get the min or minimum or lowest value from an array in PHP.

## PHP Get the Min or Minimum value in an array

Using the PHP min() function, you can find or get minimum or lowest value from an array in PHP.

Now, i will take some examples using php min() function, for loop and without min() function to get or find min or minimum value from array in PHP.

• Example – 1 Get min value in array PHP using min() function
• Example 2 – Find min value from an array without using PHP array functions
• Example – 3 PHP get min value in array using for loop

### Example – 1 Get min value in array PHP using min() function

Let’s see the following example to get or find the smallest or minimum value in the array in php; as follows:

```<?php
\$array = [1, 10, 50, 40, 2, 15, 100];
// get lowest or minimum value in array php
\$res = min(\$array);
print_r(\$res);
?> ```
`The output of the above php code is: 1`

### Example 2 – Find min value from an array without using PHP array functions

Let’s see the second example for find or get the min or minimum number in array PHP without function; as follows:

```<?php
\$array = [1000,400,10,50,170,500,45];
\$min = \$array;
foreach(\$array as \$key => \$val){
if(\$min > \$val){
\$min = \$val;

}
}
// get lowest or minimum value in array php using foreach
print \$min;
?>```
` The output of the above program is: 10`

### Example – 3 PHP get min value in array using for loop

Let’s take third example for find the minimum or min or smallest value in array PHP without using any function; as follows:

```<?php
\$array = [1000,500,10,56,560,6,4];
\$min = \$array;
// get lowest or minimum value in array php using for loop
foreach(\$array as \$key => \$val){
if(\$min > \$val){
\$min = \$val;
}
}

print \$min;
?>```
`  The output of the above program is: 4`
