Python Math: Calculate the absolute value of a floating point number

Python Math: Exercise-56 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the absolute value of a floating point number.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import math

print(math.fabs(-2.1))
print(math.fabs(-0.0))
print(math.fabs(10.1))
print(math.fabs(0.0))

Sample Output:

2.1                                                                                                           
0.0                                                                                                           
10.1                                                                                                          
0.0
