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 values: 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
