## Absolute Value Function in Python

Last Updated on Wednesday 5th Oct 2022

The abs() function returns the absolute or value of input passed over it as an argument & returns value with no sign consideration.

## Python Absolute Value

• It kind of working similar to the way that you understand mathematics. -Essentially an Absolute number or value is the distance on numbers from 0

## Python Abs() Function

• Is one of the math functions Get the Absolute Value in Python

```			```
# Get the Absolute Value
abs(x)

```

```

Let's take a look at some of the arguments that the absolute function allows.

• `Abs(Integer)``(-1,0,1)`
• `Abs(Floating Point Value)``(-1.0,0,1.0)`
• `Abs(Complex Numbers)``(5j,0+6j)`
```			```
num1 = 1
print("Value1",abs(num1))
num2 = -1
print("Value2",abs(num2))
num3 = 5.0
print("Value3",abs(num3))
num4 = -5.0
print("Value4",abs(num4))
num5 = 0-4j
print("Value5",abs(num5))
num6 = 0+8j
print("Value6",abs(num6))

```

```

returns

```			```
Value1 : 1
Value2 : 1
Value3 : 5.0
Value4 : 5.0
Value5 : 4.0
Value6 : 8.0

```

```

## Python math fabs()

• Import Math module & use the fabs() method
• Get the absolute Value as a Float
```			```
import math
math.fabs(-55)

```

```

returns

```			```
55.0

```

```

Note that fabs() function to get absolute value results in float number
