Today we have a problem about isNaN () function.

Looking at the definition, it turns out that if it’s a string, it returns true. But when the string is a number, it does return false. Want to know what’s missing here?

Answer 0:

isNaN,”The puzzling and weird behavior mentioned in that section will be judged by Number transformation first.

typeof NaN === 'number' //true

Like the example above, it returns true, but actually NaN is not a number, so there’s the isNaN function, which you can write when you judge whether a value is number or not?

function isNumber(num){
    return typeof num === 'number' && !isNaN(num) ? true : false

Answer 4:

ESStandard inisNaN Definition

as well asToNumberDefinition

So we can also find out.

isNaN(undefined); // true
isNaN(null); // false

aboutStringIt is literally converted to numbers, so why?

function toNumber(x) { return +x;}
toNumber("0xF"); // 15
toNumber("0o17"); // 15
toNumber("0b1111"); // 15
