This feature, although convenient, can be the source of many bugs. Particularly, you should watch for type conversions, which is when a value of one type turns into another.
In the example below, the string
'1' is converted into a number before the expression is evaluated.
'1' > 0 // true
An implicit conversion occurs without your explicit consent. For example, when a string and a number are added together with a
+ operand, the result is a string.
var ageGreeting = "I am " + 9 + " years old." // "I am 9 years old."
In the case you want to change from a number to a string or vice versa, you can do so explicitly.
var numString = "100"; var num = Number(numString); // 100
var numString = String(100); // '100' Next section: Control Flow
