Number.MAX_VALUE and Number.MIN_VALUE is used to represent maximum and minimum numeric value in javascript.

Syntax:

Number.MAX_VALUE 
Number.MIN_VALUE 

Return Type:
Both Number.MAX_VALUE and Number.MIN_VALUE returns a numeric value.



  • MAX_VALUE has a value of approximately 1.79E+308. The values which are larger Number.MAX_VALUE are termed as Infinity.
  • MIN_VALUE has a value of approximately 5e-324. The values which are smaller than Number.MIN_VALUE are termed as underflow values.
  • Both MAX_VALUE and MIN_VALUE are static property of Number. Therefore using x.MAX_VALUE or x.MIN_VALUE will return undefined where x is a Number or Number Object.

Example 1:

Input : Number.MAX_VALUE
Output : 1.7976931348623157e+308

Example 2:

Input : Number.MIN_VALUE

Program:




<script> 
  
function GFGFun() { 
    // JavaScript Code to illustrate Number.MAX_VALUE
    // & Number.MIN_VALUE
    document.write(Number.MAX_VALUE+"<br>");
    document.write(Number.MIN_VALUE+"<br>");
  
    // Undefined Behaviour 
    var res = 1; 
    res = res.MAX_VALUE; 
    document.write(res); 
GFGFun(); 
</script> 

Output :
