The task is to map a range of values to another range of values like map (0-100) to (100-10000000) in JavaScript. There are two approaches that are discussed below.

Approach 1: Use the logarithmic scale to map the range. In this example, first, the log value of the range is calculated and then the scale is calculated using the difference of log values of the target scale to the difference of the start scale. Then use the exponentiation to map the range for a particular number.

Example: This example implements the above approach.

html




<body style="text-align:center;">
    <h1>GeeksForGeeks</h1>
    <h3>
        Create slider to map a range of values
    </h3>
  
    <p id="GFG_UP"></p>
  
    <button onclick="myGFG()">
        Click Here
    </button>
  
    <p id="GFG_DOWN"></p>
    <script>
        var up = document.getElementById("GFG_UP");
        var val = 50;
        up.innerHTML = "Click on the button to map"
            + " the value(0-100) to a range from "
            + "100 to 10, 000, 000<br> Val - " + val;
          
        var down = document.getElementById("GFG_DOWN");
          
        function Slider(pos) {
            var minM = 0;
            var maxM = 100;
            var minV = Math.log(100);
            var maxV = Math.log(10000000);
            var scal = (maxV - minV) / (maxM - minM);
            return Math.exp(minV + scal * (pos - minM));
        }
        function myGFG() {
            down.innerHTML = "The value for "
                + val + " is " + Slider(val);
        }
    </script>
</body>


Output:

 Create slider to map a range of values

Approach 2: This example also maps the value from one range to another but uses a different formula.

Example: This example implements the above approach.

html




<body style="text-align:center;">
    <h1>GeeksForGeeks</h1>
    <h3>
        Create slider to map a range of values in JavaScript
    </h3>
  
    <p id="GFG_UP"></p>
  
    <button onclick="myGFG()">
        Click Here
    </button>
  
    <p id="GFG_DOWN"></p>
  
    <script>
        var up = document.getElementById("GFG_UP");
        var val = 50;
        up.innerHTML = "Click on the button to map"
            + " the value(0-100) to a range from "
            + "100 to 10, 000, 000<br> Val - " + val;
          
        var down = document.getElementById("GFG_DOWN");
        function Slider(pos) {
            return Math.floor(-900 + 1000 *
                    Math.exp(pos / 10.857255959));
        }
        function myGFG() {
            down.innerHTML = "The value for "
            + val + " is " + Slider(val);
        }
    </script>
</body>


Output:

 Create slider to map a range of values
