JavaScript: Number.prototype.toPrecision

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .
number.toPrecision( precision )
Return a string representation of number, with n significant digits. Result may be in exponential notation. For example, "1e+1" meaning 1*10^1, or 10. If precision is undefined, call ToString instead.
const num = 3.123;
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 1 ) === "3" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 2 ) === "3.1" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 3 ) === "3.12" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 4 ) === "3.123" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 5 ) === "3.1230" ); // true
const num = 12.345;
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 1 ) === "1e+1" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 2 ) === "12" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 3 ) === "12.3" ); // true
const num = 0.123;
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 1 ) === "0.1" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 2 ) === "0.12" ); // true
console.log( num.toPrecision ( 3 ) === "0.123" ); // true
