I have a table

```
local MyTable = {2,6,8,12,9,3,8}
```

I need to find the lowest number (2) using a script.

How would I do this?

There is probably a really simple answer I just can’t think of it.

```
local min = math.min(table.unpack(MyTable))
```

`math.min`

returns the smallest number out of its arguments.

You can also use `table.sort`

:

```
table.sort(MyTable, function(a, b)
return a < b
end)
```

Then the smallest number will be at index 1:

```
local min = MyTable[1]
```
