# Finding the list where the minimum is

So I have the following lists:

TolRin=0.2; TolRout=0.1; TolC={0.02, 0.05, 0.4}; TolL={0.02, 0.05, 0.3};

I want to find the minimum on this lists and I know that Min can do that https://reference.wolfram.com/language/ref/Min.html

However I also want to know IN WHICH LIST that minimum is and, knowing the list, finding the position.
Any clue on how to do that?

• It would be better if you use your existing question function-that-finds-the-minimum-of-various-lists-and-returns-the-list-where-the than make new question if you have any follow up or clarification. This question seems like an exact duplicate of your other one. is it not? Commented Nov 6, 2021 at 5:08
• People didn't understand the question, as I fear the existing comments will prevent a quick answer I did a new question. I'll delete the previous one. Commented Nov 6, 2021 at 5:10

You can find this using the Minimum and Position command.

For Example,

a={{1, 4, 5}, {4, 3, 2}, {1, 2, 3}}


To find the minimum of the list 'a':

Min[a] or Min[{1, 4, 5}, {4, 3, 2}, {1, 2, 3}]


Then It gives the answer 1

Then use the Position command to find out the index,

Position[{{1, 4, 5}, {4, 3, 2}, {1, 2, 3}},1]


Solution is {{1, 1}, {3, 1}}

In[1]:=Min[a] or Min[{1, 4, 5}, {4, 3, 2}, {1, 2, 3}]
