JavaScript Math max() Method
  • Last Updated : 09 Jul, 2020

Below is the example of the Math max() method.

  • Example:

    <script type="text/javascript">
         document.write("When  positive numbers are passed"+
                        " as parameters: " + Math.max(10, 32, 2));
  • Output:
    When  positive numbers are passed as parameters: 32

The Math.max() method is used to return the largest of zero or more numbers. The result is “-Infinity” if no arguments are passed and the result is NaN if at least one of the arguments cannot be converted to a number.

The max() is a static method of Math, therefore, it is always used as Math.max(), rather than as a method of a Math object created.


Math.max(value1, value2, ...)

Parameters: This method accepts as ingle parameter that can be used n number of times as mentioned above and described below:

  • value: This values sent to math.max() method for finding the largest.

Return vlues: The Math.max() method returns the largest of the given numbers.

Below examples illustrates the Math max() method in JavaScript:

  • Example 1:
    Input : Math.max(10, 32, 2)
    Output: 32
  • Example 2:
    Input : Math.max(-10, -32, -1)
    Output: -1
  • Example 3:
    Input : Math.max()
    Output: -Infinity
  • Example 4:
    Input : Math.max(10,2,NaN)
    Output: NaN

More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: When negative numbers are passed as parameters.

<script type="text/javascript">
         document.write("Result : " + Math.max(-10, -32, -1));


Result : -1

Program 2: When no parameters are passed.

<script type="text/javascript">
         document.write("Result : " + Math.max());


Result : -Infinity

Program : When NaN is passed as a parameter.

<script type="text/javascript">
         document.write("Result : " + Math.max(10,2,NaN));


Result : NaN
