# JavaScript | Math.log1p()

The Math.log1p() is an inbuilt function in JavaScript which gives the value of natural logarithm of 1 + p number. Natural logarithm is of base e, where e is an irrational and transcendental number approximately equal to 2.718.
Syntax:

`Math.log1p(1 + p)`

Parameters: In parameter 1+p, p is any number whose natural logarithm of base e is being calculated.

Returns: It returns the value of base e of logarithm of any number added with 1.

Examples:

```Input  : Math.log1p(5)
Output : 1.791759469228055```

Explanation:
Here value of natural logarithm of number 5 is 1.791759469228055 as shown output.

```Input  : Math.log1p(10)
Output : 2.3978952727983707
```

```

Errors and exceptions: Parameters for this function should always be a number otherwise it returns NaN i.e, not a number when its parameter is taken as a string.

• Example 1:

 ` `

Output:

``` NaN
```
• Example 2: This function gives error when its parameter is taken as complex number because it accepts only integer value as the parameter.

 ` `

Output:

```Error: Invalid or unexpected token
```
• Example 3: This function returns NaN i.e, not a number if the parameter is less than -1 because number should be any positive number i.e, greater then 0.

 ` `

Output:

``` NaN
```

Application:Whenever we need to find the value of natural logarithm of 1 + p number that time we take the help of this function. Its value needed many times in mathematics problem.
