Javascript Number

The Number object is a wrapper object which allows you to work with numerical values. The number object is created using the Number() constructor.It may be integer or floating-point. Syntax

var n=new Number(value);

Examples

<!DOCTYPE html>  
<html>  
<body>  
<script>  
var x=100;//integer value  
var y=100.7;//floating point value  
var z=12e5;//exponent value, output: 1200000  
var n=new Number(20);//integer value by number object    
document.write(x+" "+y+" "+z+" "+n);  
</script>  
</body>  
</html>
Try Now Output
100 100.7 1200000 20
Description The primary uses of the number object are:
  • If argument cannot be converted into a number, it returns NaN (Not a Number).
  • In a non-constructor context (i.e., without the new operator), Number can be used to perform a type conversion.
