# Python Program to find the smallest digit of a number using recursion

In this program, you will learn how to find the smallest digit of a number using recursion in Python.

```
123 => 1
435 => 3
```

## Example: How to find the smallest digit of a number using recursion in Python

```
sm = 9
def largestdigit(n):
global sm
if n > 0:
r = n % 10
if sm > r:
sm = r
largestdigit(int(n / 10))
return sm
n = int(input("Enter a number:"))
sm = largestdigit(n)
print("Smallest digit:", sm)
```

#### Output:

```
Enter a number:34215
Smallest digit: 1
```
