JavaScript sign

The JavaScript sign function is one of the Math functions which will find the Sign of a given expression. It returns the result as Positive, Negative, or Zero. The basic syntax of the JavaScript sign Function is as follows.

JavaScript sign Syntax

  • If the number argument is positive or negative zero, the JavaScript sign function will return Zero as output.
  • If it is a Negative Number, it returns a Negative One as output.
  • When a number argument is a positive number, it will return Positive One as output.
  • If it is not a number, the function will return NaN.
  • If it is Null, it will convert the Null value to Zero.

JavaScript sign Function Example

In this example, we will find the Sign of a given expression with different data types and display the output.

  • First, We used both Positive and negative Zeros.
  • Next, We used both the positive and negative values as the JavaScript function arguments.
  • Next, We tried with a String argument. As we said before, this will return NaN (Not a Number) as output.
  • Next, We tried the Math function with a Null argument, which returns zero.
  • In the last statement, We used it with multiple values.
