# JavaScript: Check if two given numbers are approximately equal to each other

## JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-256 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to check if two given numbers are approximately equal to each other.

• Use Math.abs() to compare the absolute difference of the two values to epsilon.
• Omit the third argument, epsilon, to use a default value of 0.001.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2
// Define a function 'approximatelyEqual' to check if two values are approximately equal within a specified epsilon range
const approximatelyEqual = (v1, v2, epsilon = 0.001) => Math.abs(v1 - v2) < epsilon;

// Test the 'approximatelyEqual' function with two values and a default epsilon value
console.log(approximatelyEqual(Math.PI / 2.0, 1.5708)); // true (approximately equal within the default epsilon range)
```
```

Output:

```true
```
