JavaScript | Math.E() function

Math.E() is an inbuilt function in JavaScript which is used to get the value of ep, where p is any given number.
The number e is a mathematical constant having an approximate value equal to 2.718.

  • It was discovered by the Swiss mathematician Jacob Bernoulli.
  • This number is also called Euler’s number.

Syntax:

Math.exp(p)

Paramter:

  • Here p is the parameter and it is any number.
  • Return Value:

  • It return the value of ep, where p is any given number as parameter.

Example:



Input
Math.exp(0)
Output
1

Explanation:
Here the value of parameter p is 0, So after putting the value 0 instead of p in ep
then its value becomes 1.

Input
Math.exp(2)
Output
7.38905609893065

Explanation:
Here the value of parameter p is 2, So after putting the value 2 instead of p in ep
then its value becomes 7.38905609893065.

// Here different values is being taken as

console.log(Math.exp(0));
console.log(Math.exp(1));
console.log(Math.exp(2));
console.log(Math.exp(-1));
console.log(Math.exp(-7));
console.log(Math.exp(10));
console.log(Math.exp(1.2));
