Javascript Question

Array justPrices has values such as:

`[0] = 1.5`

[1] = 4.5

[2] = 9.9.

How do I return the smallest value in the array?

Answer

Jon Resig illustrated in this article how this could be achieved by extending the Array prototype and invoking the underlying Math.min method which unfortunately doesn't take an array but a variable number of arguments:

```
Array.min = function( array ){
return Math.min.apply( Math, array );
};
```

and then:

```
var minimum = Array.min(array);
```
