 Hey there, welcome back to another post. In this post, we are going to learn how to find the smallest number from the given three numbers in Java.

Java Program to Find Smallest of Three Numbers

We have given three numbers. Write a Java program to return the smallest number.

Example 1: 

Input: [5, 3, 7]
Output: 3


Using the if-else conditions, we can find the smallest number from the given three numbers.

Java Program: 


import java.util.*;

public class Main {

    public static int findSmallest(int num1, int num2, int num3) {
        if (num1 <= num2) {
            if (num1 <= num3) {
                return num1;
            } else {
                return num3;
        } else {
            if (num2 <= num3) {
                return num2;
            } else {
                return num3;

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Scanner sc = new Scanner(;
        System.out.println("Enter first number");
        int num1 = sc.nextInt();
        System.out.println("Enter second number");
        int num2 = sc.nextInt();
        System.out.println("Enter third number");
        int num3 = sc.nextInt();

        int smallest = findSmallest(num1, num2, num3);
        System.out.println("Smallest number from " + num1 + ", " + num2 + ", and " + num3 + " is: " + smallest);


Enter first number
Enter second number
Enter third number
Smallest number from 11, 65, and 34 is: 11
