How to Get Decimal Part of Number in Javascript

In this tutorial, you will learn how to get decimal part of number in javascript. The number whose whole number part and the fractional part are separated by a decimal point is known as a decimal number. The fractional part is also known as the decimal part. For example, 6.58 is a decimal number where 6 is the whole number and 58 is the decimal part.

To get the decimal part of the decimal number, we can make use of the split() method. This method is only available for strings, so if the value is of number type, then we have to convert it into string type using the toString() method and then convert it back to number type using the Number() method.

In the following example, we have an input field in which we will enter a random decimal number. Upon click of a button, we will get the decimal part and display that on the screen.  Please have a look over the code example and the steps given below.


  • We have 4 elements in the HTML file (div, input, button, and h1). The div element is just a wrapper for the rest of the elements.
  • The innerText for the button element is “Get” and for the h1 element, it is “Result”.
  • We have done some basic styling using CSS and added the link to our style.css stylesheet inside the head element.
  • We have also included our javascript file script.js with a script tag at the bottom.
<!DOCTYPE html>

  <div class="container">
    <input type="number" placeholder="Enter Number">

  <script src="script.js"></script>

.container {        
    text-align: center;

button {
  margin-top: 10px;
  padding: 10px 20px;

input {
  display: block;  
  margin: 10px auto;
  padding: 10px 20px;

input[type=number]::-webkit-outer-spin-button { 
  -webkit-appearance: none; 
  margin: 0; 


  • We have selected the input element, button element, and h1 element using the document.querySelector() method and stored them in input, btnGet, and output variables respectively.
  • We have attached a click event listener to the button element.
  • In the event handler function, we are getting the value from the input element using value property and storing that in the num variable.
  • We are calling the split() method to split num into two parts and storing the second part in the result variable.
  • We are converting num back to number type using Number() method.
  • We are displaying the result in the h1 element using the innerText property.
let input = document.querySelector("input");
let btnGet = document.querySelector("button");
let output = document.querySelector("h1");

btnGet.addEventListener("click", () => {
  let num = input.value;
  let result = num.split(".")[1];
  result = Number(result);
  output.innerText = result;
