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

Python: Get the Key Whose Value Is Maximal in a Dictionary

>>> model_scores = {'model_a': 100, 'model_z': 198, 'model_t': 150}
>>> # workaround
>>> keys, values = list(model_scores.keys()), list(model_scores.values())
>>> keys[values.index(max(values))]
'model_z'
>>> # one-line
>>> max(model_scores, key=model_scores.get)
'model_z'
