abs () in Python

Python Methods and Functions

The abs () function is used to return the absolute value of a number. 
Syntax :

  abs (number)   number:  Can be integer, a floating point number or a complex number 

Abs () takes only one argument, a number whose absolute value should be returned. The argument can be an integer, floating point, or complex number.

  • If the argument is an integer or floating point, abs () returns the absolute value as an integer or floating point comma.
  • For a complex number, abs () returns only part of the value, which can also be a floating point number.

# Python code for illustration
# abs () inline function

  
# float

float = - 54.26

print ( 'Absolute value of float is:' , abs ( float ))

 
# Integer

int = - 94

print ( 'Absolute value of integer is:' , abs ( int ))

  
# Complex number

complex = ( 3 - 4j ) < / p>

print ( 'Absolute value or Magnitude of complex is:' , abs ( complex ))

Output:

 Absolute value of float is: 54.26 Absolute value of integer is: 94 Absolute value or Magnitude of complex is: 5.0
