# Math.max() In JavaScript

The Math.max() function 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.
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.

Syntax:

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

Parameters: This fucntion accepts Value1,Value2 Values sent to math.max() function for finding the largest.

Returns: The Math.max() function returns the largest of the given numbers.

Examples:

```Input  : Math.max(10, 32, 2)
Output : 32

Input  : Math.max(-10, -32, -1)
Output : -1

Input  : Math.max()
Output : -Infinity

Input  : Math.max(10,2,NaN)
Output : Nan
```

Let’s see some JavaScript code on this function:

• Example 1: When positive numbers are passed as parameters.

 `<``script` `type``=``"text/javascript"``> ` `   ``document.write("Output : " + Math.max(10, 32, 2)); ` ` `

Output:

`Output : 32`
• Example 2: When negative numbers are passed as parameters.

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

Output:

`Output : -1`
• Example 3: When no parameters are passed.

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

Output:

`Output : -Infinity`
• Example 4: When NaN is passed as a parameter.

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

Output:

`Output : NaN`
