Python Validations

In this tutorial, we will learn how to find the minimum value from a list in Python. We will take a list of numbers as input from the user and find the minimum value from the list using the min() function.

In Python, there are a number of ways to find the minimum value from a list. One way is to use the built-in **min()** function. Another way is to use a for loop to iterate through the list, keeping track of the minimum value seen so far.

Which method is best depends on the situation. If the list is very large, or if the values in the list are complex objects, the **min()** function will be more efficient. If the list is small, or if you need to know the index of the minimum value (in addition to the value itself), a **For loop** may be more appropriate.

We will explain all the methods to find the smallest values in a Python List one by one.

Python has a build-in function called min() which can be used to find the minimum value from a list. The syntax for this function is **min(list)**. This function will return the minimum value from the list.

**Syntax**

`min(List)`

**Code example**

```
numbers = [30, 50, 90, 10, 70, 20,]
result_min = min(numbers)
print("Minimum Value:", result_min)
```

**Output**

`Minimum Value: 10`

- The code creates a list of numbers called '
**numbers**'. - The code finds the minimum value in the list '
**numbers**' using the**min()**function. - The code prints the minimum value.

If you need to find the minimum value from a list in Python, you can do so using a **For loop**. This loop will iterate through the list, checking each value to see if it is less than the current minimum value. If it is, the minimum value will be updated. At the end of the loop, the minimum value will be the smallest value in the list.

```
numbers = [30, 50, 90, 10, 70, 20,]
min_val = numbers[0]
for num in numbers:
if num < min_val:
min_val = num
print("Minimum value is: {}".format(min_val))
```

**Output**

`Minimum value is: 10`

The code is looping through the list of **numbers** and comparing each value to the **min_val** variable. If the value of the current number is less than the **min_val**, the **min_val** variable is updated with the new value. This process repeats until the end of the list, at which point the minimum value is printed.

If you want to find the minimum value from a list in Python, you can use the **List.sort()** function. This function will sort the list in ascending order, so the first element in the list will be the minimum value.

```
numbers = [30, 50, 90, 10, 70, 20,]
numbers.sort()
min_val = numbers[0]
print("Minimum value is: ", min_val)
```

**Output**

`Minimum value is: 10`

The above code is finding the minimum value in a list of numbers. The list is sorted in ascending order and then the **first value** in the list is printed, which is the **minimum** value.

```
numbers = [30, 50, 90, 10, 70, 20,]
result_min = min(numbers)
print("Minimum Value:", result_min)
```
