how to find specific row and column with smallest value 2D array?

so i dont have to find the min value but the specific row and column where the min value is located. This is how much i have that is working haha.

```Scanner dati=new Scanner(System.in);
int[][] a;
int n,m,i,j,z,vertiba,x,v;
vertiba=0;

do{
System.out.print("How many crows (max=20): ");
n=dati.nextInt();
}while (n<1 || n>20);

do{
System.out.print("How many columns (max=20): ");
m=dati.nextInt();;
}while (m<1 || m>20);

System.out.print("enter values ");
a=new int[n][m];

for( i=0;i< n ; i++){
for( j=0; j< m; j++) {
System.out.print("enter values["+i+"]["+j+"] ");
v= dati.nextInt();
a[i][j] = v;
}
}

for ( i = 0; i < n; i++) {
for ( j = 0; j < m; j++) {
System.out.print(a[i][j] + " ");
}
System.out.println();
}

```

You add something like this to the begining

```int min, minCol, minRow;
min = Integer.MAX_VALUE;
```

Then you extend your input for loop with an if statement

```for( i=0;i< n ; i++){
for( j=0; j< m; j++) {
System.out.print("enter values["+i+"]["+j+"] ");
v= dati.nextInt();
a[i][j] = v;
if( v < min ) {
min = v;
minRow = i;
minCol = j;
}
}
}
```
