abs()

abs() is a built-in function available with python, and it will return you the absolute value for the input given.

Syntax:

abs(value)

Parameters: (value)

The input value to be given to abs() to get the absolute value. It can be an integer, a float, or a complex number.

Return Value:

It will return the absolute value for the given number.

  • If the input is an integer, the return value also will be an integer.
  • If the input is a float, the return value will also be float.
  • If the input is a complex number, the return value will be the magnitude of the input.

Examples:

Code Example 1: Integer and Float number

To get the absolute value of an integer and float number check this code:

# testing abs() for an integer and float

int_num = -25

float_num = -10.50

print("The absolute value of an integer number is:", abs(int_num))
print("The absolute value of a float number is:", abs(float_num))

Output:

The absolute value of an integer number is: 25
The absolute value of a float number is: 10.5

Example 2: Complex Number

To get absolute value of complex number

# testing abs() for a complex number

complex_num = (3+10j)

print("The magnitude of the complex number is:", abs(complex_num))

Output:

The magnitude of the complex number is: 10.44030650891055

Summary:

  • Abs() is a built-in function available with python, and it will return you the absolute value for the input given.
  • Value is an input value to be given to abs() to get the absolute value. It can be an integer, a float, or a complex number.
  • The abs() method takes one argument, i.e. the value you want to get the absolute.
  • The abs function returns the absolute value for the given number.
