# Python Program to Find Smallest Item in a Tuple

Write a Python Program to Find the Smallest or Minimum Item in a Tuple. Here, we use the Tuple min function (min(smTuple))) to return the Smallest Tuple item.

```# Tuple Min Item

smTuple = (9, 11, 22, 45, 33, 5, 17, 30)
print("Tuple Items = ", smTuple)

print("Smallest Item in smTuple Tuple = ", min(smTuple))```

## Python Program to Find Smallest Item in a Tuple

We used the Tuple sorted function (sorted(smTuple)) to sort the Tuple in ascending order and print the first item, the Smallest.

```# Tuple Min Item

smTuple = (14, 19, 11, 25, 7, 22, 30)
print("Tuple Items = ", smTuple)

smTuple = sorted(smTuple)
print("Smallest Item in smTuple Tuple = ", smTuple[0])```
``````Tuple Items =  (14, 19, 11, 25, 7, 22, 30)
Smallest Item in smTuple Tuple =  7``````

In this Python example, we assigned the Tuple first value as the Smallest (tupSmallest = smTuple[0]), and the for loop range starts at one and traverses to smTuple length. The if condition (if(tupSmallest > smTuple[I])) examines whether the current Tuple item is less than the Smallest. If True, assign that Tuple value to the Smallest and the index value to the tupSmallestPos variable.

```# Tuple Min Item

smTuple = (25, 33, 55, 17, 2, 40, 30, 65, 29)
print("Tuple Items = ", smTuple)

tupSmallest = smTuple[0]
for i in range(len(smTuple)):
if(tupSmallest > smTuple[i]):
tupSmallest = smTuple[i]
tupSmallestPos = i

print("Smallest Item in smTuple Tuple     = ", tupSmallest)
print("Smallest Tuple Item index Position = ", tupSmallestPos)```
``````Tuple Items =  (25, 33, 55, 17, 2, 40, 30, 65, 29)
Smallest Item in smTuple Tuple     =  2
Smallest Tuple Item index Position =  4``````

Python Program to return the Tuples Smallest Number using Functions.

```# Tuple Max Item

def tupleSmallest(smTuple):
tupSmallest = smTuple[0]
for i in smTuple:
if(tupSmallest > i):
tupSmallest = i
return tupSmallest

smTuple = (19, 77, 13, 87, 33, 6, 17, 45, 66)
print("Tuple Items = ", smTuple)

smt = tupleSmallest(smTuple)
print("Smallest Item in smTuple Tuple = ", smt)```
``````Tuple Items =  (19, 77, 13, 87, 33, 6, 17, 45, 66)
Smallest Item in smTuple Tuple =  6``````
