Min function


#1

In beginner tutorial, 7.14, min(),
min(9., -9., -27.**(1./3.)) returns "-12.0"
but -27.**(1./3.) correctly returns -3.0
What is the problem?


#2

Is this everything you entered?

min(9., -9., -27.**(1./3.))

When run in python 2.7.* and python 3.* it comes out with -9.0 as the correct response.
