    Getting the smallest value


    Hi,

    I'm trying to figure out how to display the smallest number from a set of numbers that user inputs in.. Can anyone help point out what I'm doing wrong in my code?

    Code:
    
    
    I apologize if it's not indented properly, it's hard to do it on the forum..

    Anyways, as it is: if I input numbers: 55, -13, 24 -> it will give me 24 as the smallest number.

    If I remove the first "smallest = input;" it gives my -13 -> which is right BUT the logic is wrong.. It's saying since smallest = 0 is smaller than 55 it won't assign smallest to be equal to whatever input is (in this case 55).

    I need it to assign input to the first number (e.g 55) and then compare that to the rest of the numbers...

    ----

    Now, if I try the excepts, I just get a bunch of errors..

    Oh that's because I already solved it. If you looked at the edit revision note at the end of the post..
