# JavaScript - The Number Object

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.

### Syntax

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).

## Number Properties

Here is a list of each property and their description.

Property | Description |
---|---|

The largest possible value a number in JavaScript can have 1.7976931348623157E+308 | |

The smallest possible value a number in JavaScript can have 5E-324 | |

Equal to a value that is not a number. | |

A value that is less than MIN_VALUE. | |

A value that is greater than MAX_VALUE | |

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 | |

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.

## Number Methods

The Number object contains only the default methods that are a part of every object's definition.

Method | Description |
---|---|

Forces a number to display in exponential notation, even if the number is in the range in which JavaScript normally uses standard notation. | |

Formats a number with a specific number of digits to the right of the decimal. | |

Returns a string value version of the current number in a format that may vary according to a browser's local settings. | |

Defines how many total digits (including digits to the left and right of the decimal) to display of a number. | |

Returns the string representation of the number's value. | |

Returns the number's value. |

In the following sections, we will have a few examples to explain the methods of Number.
