You're right that it's simple (or fairly simple, anyway). So let's start: what part of the code do you think is calculating the highest value? You'd need to change that code to calculate the lowest value.

I have never thought that simply reading code is a good way to learn programming. I suggest you go through the method to find a maximum value and read out what the code says. Read it aloud. I hope that will make it easier to understand.

Line 30 in the original code. You have a second variable which is completely separate but has the same name in line 23.

That's a pleasure

That is what the forum is for. I am pleased that you worked it out; please show us your solution.
sorry for all the questions . . .
