python min in dictionary

a_dictionary = {"a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 3}

# get key with min value
min_key = min(a_dictionary, key=a_dictionary.get)

# print output => "a"

Here is what the above code is Doing:
1. min() is a built-in function that returns the smallest item in an iterable.
2. a_dictionary.get is a method that returns the value of a key in a dictionary.
3. min(a_dictionary, key=a_dictionary.get) returns the key with the smallest value.
