JavaScript Question

In this javascript quiz, find out what is the math random function range when mutiply by value as math random gives range from > 0 to 1.

First, create a variable random and assign a random number to it using a random function.

let random = Math.random();

Now, we are checking the value of random with the console log and also multiply value of 2 to a random variable.

console.log(random * 2);

Any guess, what should the output of the above statement?

Answer – >=0 or <2

Click To Run Code


Now, you know the answer is “>=0 or <2“. But why it’s not a fixed answer and range is their.

So, the random function gives the random number and by default, their range is greater than equal to 0 but less than 1.

Because of this, math random function output value is unpredictable. If you run random function 10 time then it gives you 10 different value. Which are less than one.

So, when you multiply 2 with random number than their range increases to 2 but less than 2.

At last, That’s why we get an answer “0> & <2“.
