# Java Math

The Java Math class has many methods that allows you to perform mathematical tasks on numbers.

## Math.max(x,y)

The `Math.max(x,y)` method can be used to find the highest value of x and y:

Math.max(5, 10);
Run example »

## Math.min(x,y)

The `Math.min(x,y)` method can be used to find the lowest value of of x and y:

Math.min(5, 10);
Run example »

## Math.sqrt(x)

The `Math.sqrt(x)` method returns the square root of x:

Math.sqrt(64);
Run example »

## Math.abs(x)

The `Math.abs(x)` method returns the absolute (positive) value of x:

Math.abs(-4.7)
Run example »

## Math.random()

`Math.random()` returns a random number between 0 (inclusive), and 1 (exclusive):

Math.random();
Run example »
