JavaScript Numbers JavaScript has only one type of numbers. Numbers can be written with, or without decimals: Example var x1=34.00; // Written with decimals var x2=34; // Written without decimals . Extra large or extra small numbers can be written with scientific (exponential) notation: Example var y=123e5; // 12300000 var z=123e-5; // 0.00123 23

The <script> Tag To insert a JavaScript into an HTML page, use the <script> tag. The <script> and </script> tells where the JavaScript starts and ends. The lines between the <script> and </script> contain the JavaScript: <script> alert("My First JavaScript"); </script> 28

JavaScript in <body> In this example, JavaScript writes into the HTML <body> while the page loads: Example <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> document.write("<h1>This is a heading</h1>"); document.write("<p>This is a paragraph</p>"); </script> </body> </html> 29

JavaScript Functions and Events The JavaScript statements, in the example above, are executed while the page loads. More often, we want to execute code when an event occurs, like when the user clicks a button. If we put JavaScript code inside a function, we can call that function when an event occurs. 30

JavaScript in <head> or <body> You can place an unlimited number of scripts in an HTML document. Scripts can be in the <body> or in the <head> section of HTML, and/or in both. It is a common practice to put functions in the <head> section, or at the bottom of the page. This way they are all in one place and do not interfere with page content. 31
