I'm trying to get the minimum of 3 floating numbers. I believe my minimum3 method is alright but I think the problem is getting 3 numbers that are being entered in the main method.

public class Methods1
{
	public static void main(String [] args)
	{

        float x = input.nextFloat();
        float y = input.nextFloat();
        float z = input.nextFloat();

        float min = minimum3( x, y, z );

		System.out.println("The minimum is " + min + "\n" + "Nice job!!!");






	}



	public static float minimum3(float x, float y, float z)
	{
		float min = Math.min(Math.min(x, y), z);
		return min;
	}



}

What is the "input" object.

It appears as though you have forgotten to declare, define, and initialize it. (I assume it is suppossed to be a Scanner or something like that).
