Type inference, also known as type promotion, is a process by which the compiler can automatically assign a specific data type to an expression that results in ambiguity. Type inference is most commonly used with list objects. For example, if you have this code:

You might be expecting it to declare the variable foo as being of type double because it looks like we are assigning 1 to a double-type variable. However, since there are other types that can work with arrays (such as int or string), the compiler will infer what type should be inferred from the value and use whatever it determines would make sense. The problem here is that when dealing with lists of numbers such as for matrices, or when using standard mathematical operations, you would expect the compiler to promote the type of what is assigned to double so that it can be used with other numbers.

The result: The problem here is that when dealing with lists of numbers such as for matrices, or when using standard mathematical operations, you would expect the compiler to promote the type of what is assigned to double so that it can be used with other numbers.

Type coercion in JavaScript happens all over – and nearly everyone has dealt with this at some point in their coding career! However, there are ways around these issues by understanding how they occur and knowing where we might run into them again. For example if a user types “double”, but our code expects a string, the compiler will coerce this to a string and produce an error.

#### If you are dealing with numbers in JavaScript, it is important that they all be of the same type – otherwise we could run into issues where one number does not match up with another.

For example if we have two objects containing three doubles each: objectA contains 0.0, 0.33 and 1100 but objectB only has values for .332 and 1100 then when operated on by standard mathematical operations such as multiplication or addition these errors can occur. The result would either be “NaN” (not-a-number) or “-Infinity”. This may seem like weird behavior at first because math makes sense! But really what’s happening is that JavaScript is expecting a string and not an object.

To avoid this issue, we can coerce the values to strings: Now when you perform math operations on these numbers they will work correctly as expected!

The code expects a string but gets an object containing two doubles instead which causes errors if operated on by standard mathematical operators such as multiplication or addition. To fix this problem, we need to make sure all our objects contain only numbers (and preferably only integers) so that JavaScript will evaluate them as numbers and not objects.

This is a good way to make sure we’re always using the proper data types and that everything works appropriately in JavaScript.

Now, let’s create an object for each of our different number types: NumberZero, NumberOneToTen, and a NumbersOddNumberFactory class which contains objects with both integer values from zero to ten and odd integers – between 11 and 99 but not including 100:

var StringArray=new Array(); var NumberZero={0: “”, 33:”33″} var NumberOneToTen=[]; NumberOneToTen[“0″]=”zero”; NumberOneToTen[11]=”eleven”; var NumbersOddNumberFactory=new function(){}; NumbersOddNumberFactory.20=21; NumbersOddNumberFactory.29=30; NumbersOddNumberFactory.39=40; NumbersOdBinary = new Array(); NumbersOBinary[‘101’]=”100″. Now, when you create a list of numbers with these objects – they will all coerce to the appropriate data type as expected! For example, if we have an array that contains both StringArray and ObjectElements (which
