# Lowest Value Function

**Algebra**Level 4

\(F(w,x,y,z)=\dfrac { 1 }{ 8 } \left( S-T \right) \)

where

\( S=aw+bx+cy+dz-\left| w-x \right| -\left| aw+bx-cy-\left| w-x \right| \right| \)

\(T=\left| aw+bx+cy-dz-\left| w-x \right| -\left| aw+bx-cy-\left| w-x \right| \right| \right| \)

For certain positive integers \(a,b,c,d\) and for all \(w,x,y,z\), this function \(F\left(w,x,y,z\right)\) always returns the lowest of the values \(w,x,y,z\). \(\;\;\) For example

\(F(4,-3,2,1)=-3\).

Let \(a,b,c,d\) be integer digits of a \(4\) digit integer \(A = \overline{abcd} \). What is the value of \(A\)?
