You don’t need jQuery. You can do this using a for loop:

var total = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < someArray.length; i++) {
    total += someArray[i] << 0;


var total = 0;
$.each(someArray,function() {
    total += parseInt(this, 10);

To also handle floating point numbers:

  • Standard JavaScript:

    var arr = ["20.0","40.1","80.2","400.3"];
    var n   = arr.length;
    var sum = 0;
       sum += parseFloat(arr[n]) || 0;
  • jQuery:

    var arr = ["20.0","40.1","80.2","400.3"];
    var sum = 0;
    $.each(arr,function(){sum+=parseFloat(this) || 0;});

What the above gets you:

  • ability to input any kind of value into the array; number or numeric string(123 or “123”), floating point string or number (“123.4” or 123.4), or even text (abc)
  • only adds the valid numbers and/or numeric strings, neglecting any bare text (eg [1,’a’,’2′] sums to 3)

If you want it to be a jquery method, you can do it like this :

$.sum = function(arr) {
    var r = 0;
    $.each(arr, function(i, v) {
        r += v;
    return r;

and call it like this :

var sum = $.sum(["20", "40", "80", "400"]);

You can use reduce which works in all browser except IE8 and lower.

["20","40","80","400"].reduce(function(a, b) {
    return parseInt(a, 10) + parseInt(b, 10);

Another method, if eval is safe & fast :


In it becomes obvious that the jQuery devs have serious mental issues reg. functional programming inspired additions. Somehow it’s good to have some fundamental things (like map) but not others (like reduce), unless it reduces jQuery’s overall filesize. Go figure.

Helpfully, someone placed code to use the normal reduce function for jQuery arrays:

$.fn.reduce = [].reduce;

Now we can use a simple reduce function to create a summation:

//where X is a jQuery array
X.reduce(function(a,b){ return a + b; });
// (change "a" into parseFloat("a") if the first a is a string)

Lastly, as some older browsers hadn’t yet implemented reduce, a polyfill can be taken from MDN (it’s big but I guess it has the exact same behavior, which is desirable):

if ( 'function' !== typeof Array.prototype.reduce ) {
    Array.prototype.reduce = function( callback /*, initialValue*/ ) {
        'use strict';
        if ( null === this || 'undefined' === typeof this ) {
          throw new TypeError(
             'Array.prototype.reduce called on null or undefined' );
        if ( 'function' !== typeof callback ) {
          throw new TypeError( callback + ' is not a function' );
        var t = Object( this ), len = t.length >>> 0, k = 0, value;
        if ( arguments.length >= 2 ) {
          value = arguments[1];
        } else {
          while ( k < len && ! k in t ) k++; 
          if ( k >= len )
            throw new TypeError('Reduce of empty array with no initial value');
          value = t[ k++ ];
        for ( ; k < len ; k++ ) {
          if ( k in t ) {
             value = callback( value, t[k], k, t );
        return value;
    var arr = ["20.0","40.1","80.2","400.3"],
    sum = 0;
$.each(arr,function(){sum+=parseFloat(this) || 0; });

Worked perfectly for what i needed. Thanks vol7ron

You can do it in this way.

var somearray = ["20","40","80","400"];

somearray =;

var total = somearray.reduce(function(a,b){  return a+b })
