JavaScript Array Methods For Absolute Beginners

There are JavaScript methods that you can take advantage of when you need to. We like to propose applications where you can use such methods. This helps you to understand them better. In this lesson today we are going to use a JavaScript method of push to show a random number.

Set The JavaScript Array *

Lets set up the JavaScript array. We are going to use an example of the Power Ball Lottery. This consists of 6 numbers total. The first 5 numbers are 1 through 69. However the last number is 1 through 26. We are going to set up the first 5 numbers for our array.

var lucky = ["11", "25", "33", "42", "57"];

Generate a Random Number Math Function In JavaScript *

To generate a random number from 1 to 26 we will use this JavaScript function stored in a variable called rand.

var rand = Math.floor(Math.random() * 26) + 1;
