JavaScript | Number isSafeInteger()

What is a Safe Integer?
A safe integer is an integer which has the following properties

  • A number which can be represented as an IEEE-754 double precision number i.e. all integers from (253 – 1) to -(253 – 1)).

What is an IEEE-754 double precision number?
Double-precision floating-point format is a computer number format, which occupies 64 bits in a computer memory.
It represents a wide range of numeric values by using a floating point.

The IEEE 754 standard specifies a binary64 as having:

Sign bit: 1 bit
Exponent: 11 bits
Significand precision: 53 bits (52 explicitly stored)

isSafeInteger() Method In JavaScript



The isSafeInteger() method in JavaScript is used to check whether a number is a safe integer or not.

Syntax:

Number.isSafeInteger(Value)

Parameters Used:
1. Value :It is the number to be check for safeinteger() method.

Return Value:
The toExponential() method in JavaScript returns true if the value is a safe integer Number, else it returns false.

Examples:

Input : Number.isSafeInteger(23)
Output : true
     
Input : Number.isSafeInteger(-23)
Output : true

Input : Number.isSafeInteger(0.5)
Output : false

Input : Number.isSafeInteger(0/0)
Output : false

  1. Passing a positive number as an argument in the isSafeInteger() method.
    <script type = "text/javascript"
    document.write("Output : " + Number.isSafeInteger(23));
    </script>

    OUTPUT:

    Output : true
  2. Passing a negative number as an argument in the isSafeInteger() method.
    <script type = "text/javascript"
    document.write("Output : " + Number.isSafeInteger(-23));
    </script>

    OUTPUT:

    Output : true
  3. Passing a number(with decimals) as an argument in the isSafeInteger() method.
    <script type = "text/javascript"
    document.write("Output : " + Number.isSafeInteger(0.5));
    </script>

    OUTPUT:

    Output : false
  4. Passing an equation( which equates to an infinte value) as an argument in the isSafeInteger() method.
    <script type = "text/javascript"
    document.write("Output : " + Number.isSafeInteger(0 / 0));
    </script>

    OUTPUT:

    Output : false

Code Explanation:
JavaScript uses double-precision floating-point format numbers as specified in IEEE 754 and can only safely represent numbers between -(253 – 1) and 253 – 1.If the parameter passed lies in this specified range then the number.isSafeInteger() function returns true else false.
