# `⌊` Lesser of

Finds the smaller of two numbers. Each number in the right-hand argument is compared with the corresponding number in the left-hand argument. The result is the smaller number from each comparison. (This operation is affected by `⎕CT,` the comparison tolerance)

```             87 ⌊ 91
87
¯5 ⌊ ¯9                  (The negative number further from 0
¯9                              is considered the smaller)
20 7 40 ⌊ 91 3 41        (Each number in a vector is compared
20 3 40                         with the corresponding number in a
vector of equal size)
