# C Exercises: Return the absolute value of a long integer

## C Variable Type : Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a C program to return the absolute value of a long integer.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

``````#include<stdio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>

int main ()
{
long int x,y;
printf("\n Input 1st number (positive or negative) : ");
scanf("%ld",&x);
printf(" Input 2nd number (positive or negative) : ");
scanf("%ld",&y);
printf (" The absolute value of 1st number is : %ld\n",labs(x));
printf (" The absolute value of 2nd number is : %ld\n\n",labs(y));

return 0;
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```Input 1st number (positive or negative) : 25
Input 2nd number (positive or negative) : -125
The absolute value of 1st number is : 25
The absolute value of 2nd number is : 125
```

C Programming Code Editor:

```#include<stdio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>

int main ()
{
long int x,y;
printf("\n Input 1st number (positive or negative) : ");
scanf("%ld",&x);
printf(" Input 2nd number (positive or negative) : ");
scanf("%ld",&y);
printf (" The absolute value of 1st number is : %ld\n",labs(x));
printf (" The absolute value of 2nd number is : %ld\n\n",labs(y));

return 0;
}```
