findMin

Language/Type: JavaScript arrays
Author: Melissa Hovik (on 2016/09/25)

Write a function named findMin that accepts an array of numbers as a parameter and returns the smallest number in the array. For example, if an array variable named nums stored the following values:

let nums = [-1, 3.2, 12, 15, -4, 1, -12.5, 1, 8];

Then the call of findMin(nums) should return -12.5 since that is the smallest numerical value in the array.

You may assume that the array passed to your function is non-empty and contains only number types.
