finding the smallest value in an Array

Code:

`$myArray = array(48, 9, 52, 183);`

I have $myArray like the above.

I like to find the smallest value in the Array.

So I made the code below.

Code:

**code**

if ( $myArray[0] < $myArray[1] ) {

$smallest_between01=$myArray[0];

} else {

$smallest_between01=$myArray[1];

}

if ( $myArray[2] < $myArray[3] ) {

$smallest_between23=$myArray[2];

} else {

$smallest_between23=$myArray[3];

}

if ( $smallest_between01 < $smallest_between23 ) {

$smallest=$smallest_between01;

} else {

$smallest=$smallest_between23;

}

echo $smallest;

**result**

9

I now found the smallest value "9" which I wanted.

I guess there might be more fine code for finding the smallest value in the Array.

Do you have any?

( I am a beginner at Array.)
