Number
A Number object represents any numerical value, whether it is an integer or floating-point number. Generally, you do not need to worry about a Number object because a numerical value automatically becomes a Number object instance when you use a numerical value or assign it to a variable.
Constants
MAX_VALUE  :  Number
The largest representable Number.
MIN_VALUE  :  Number
The smallest representable Number.
NaN  :  Number
Not a Number.
NEGATIVE_INFINITY  :  Number
Negative infinite value; returned on overflow;
POSITIVE_INFINITY  :  Number
Negative infinite value; returned on overflow;
