Find Minimum of Items in a Tuple

To find minimum of items in a Tuple in Python, use min() builtin function. We can also provide a key function for min() to transform the items and then find the minimum of those values.

Python min() builtin function

Examples

Minimum of Tuple of Integers

In the following program, we take a tuple x with integer values, and find the minimum item in this tuple.

Python Program

aTuple = (2, 5, 8, 1, 4, 3)
result = min(aTuple)
print('Minimum :', result)
Try Online

Output

Minimum : 1

Minimum of Tuple of Strings based on Length

Here key is length of the item. To find minimum of strings based on length, call min() function and send len() function as key parameter.

Python Program

aTuple = ('Tea', 'Banana', 'Pomegranate')
result = min(aTuple, key=len)
print('Minimum :', result)
Try Online

Output

Minimum : Tea

Conclusion

In this Python Tutorial, we learned how to find the minimum of items in a Tuple in Python using min() function.
