TheĀ Math.EĀ property returns eĀ mathematical constant (2.718281828459045...).

eĀ is called as Euler's numberĀ or as Napier's constant. However, it was discovered by theĀ Jacob Bernoulli. ItĀ is a mathematical constant used as the base of theĀ natural logarithm.

Using JavaScript it is possible to compute aproximation of e mathematical number in following way.

1. Infinity seriesĀ example

To calculate e number folowing function with infinity series can be used - to get better precision infiniteĀ number of iterations with big precision numbers should be used.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

function computeE(iterations) {
	var e = 0;
  
  	for (var i = 0; i < iterations; ++i) {
      	var divider = 1;
      
      	for (var j = 0; j < i; ++j) {
            divider *= (j + 1);
        }
      
      	e += (1 / divider);
    }
  
  	return e;
}

console.log( computeE(  1 ) ); // 1
console.log( computeE(  2 ) ); // 2
console.log( computeE(  5 ) ); // 2.708333333333333
console.log( computeE( 10 ) ); // 2.7182815255731922
console.log( computeE( 20 ) ); // 2.7182818284590455
console.log( computeE( 50 ) ); // 2.7182818284590455
