The Number object represents numerical date, either integers or floating-point numbers. In general, you do not need to worry about Number objects because the browser automatically converts number literals to instances of the number class.
The syntax for creating a number object is as follows −
var val = new Number(number);
In the place of number, if you provide any non-number argument, then the argument cannot be converted into a number, it returns NaN (Not-a-Number).
Here is a list of each property and their description.
|Sr.No.||Property & Description|
|3||NaN Equal to a value that is not a number.|
|4||NEGATIVE_INFINITY A value that is less than MIN_VALUE.|
|5||POSITIVE_INFINITY A value that is greater than MAX_VALUE|
|6||prototype A static property of the Number object. Use the prototype property to assign new properties and methods to the Number object in the current document|
|7||constructor Returns the function that created this object’s instance. By default this is the Number object.|
In the following sections, we will take a few examples to demonstrate the properties of Number.
The Number object contains only the default methods that are a part of every object’s definition.
|Sr.No.||Method & Description|
|2||toFixed() Formats a number with a specific number of digits to the right of the decimal.|
|3||toLocaleString() Returns a string value version of the current number in a format that may vary according to a browser’s local settings.|
|4||toPrecision() Defines how many total digits (including digits to the left and right of the decimal) to display of a number.|
|5||toString() Returns the string representation of the number’s value.|
|6||valueOf() Returns the number’s value.|
In the following sections, we will have a few examples to explain the methods of Number.
