JavaScript Number Reference


JavaScript Numbers

JavaScript has only one type of number.

Numbers can be written with, or without, decimals:

Example

var x = 3.14;     // A number with decimals
var y = 34;       // A number without decimals

Extra large or extra small numbers can be written with scientific (exponent) notation:

Example

var x = 123e5;    // 12300000
var y = 123e-5;   // 0.00123
