MINA()

• Parameters are any set of numbers.
• MINA(), returns the smallest value in a list of arguments, including numbers, text, and logical values.

Description

• This function gives the smallest number in a given set of values.
• In , First parameter is required and from the second parameter are optional.
• Here Parameters can be numbers, names, arrays or references that contain numbers.
• Also logical values and text representations can be valid.
• Suppose the argument contain the logical value TRUE , it is considered as 1 and if it is FALSE ,it is considered as 0.
• In a referred array only numbers are considered.
• Empty cells,logical values or text in the referred array are not considered.
• suppose the arguments contain no numbers then this gives the value as 0.
• This functon will return the result as error when any one of the argument is nonnumeric or the referred array cannot translated in to numbers.
• If we want make logical values and text representations of numbers as dummy then we can use the MIN function.

ZOS

• Parameters are any set of numbers.
• For e.g.,MINA(1..5,false)

Examples

1. =MINA(5,15,25)=5
2. =MINA(-1,-6,-9,-15)=-15
3. =MINA(0.252,0.234,0.214,0.2)=0.2
4. =MINA(2,5,7,TRUE)=1
5. =MINA(4,7,9,FALSE)=0
