# Python abs() Function For Absolute Value Tutorial with Examples

Python provides the `abs()` function in order to calculate and return the absolute value of the given number. Absolute value is used in mathematics in order to make the calculation easier. The given value can be different types of a number of presentations like float, complex, negative, hexadecimal, etc.

# abs() Function Syntax

abs() function has very simple syntax where only a single argument is accepted in order to calculate its absolute value.

• `abs` is the function name that will return the absolute value of the given NUMBER.
• `NUMBER`is the number we want to calculate its absolute value. NUMBER can be floating-point, negative numbers, complex numbers, hexadecimal, binary, etc.

# Absolute Value For A Integer

We will start with a simple example where we will calculate the absolute value of an integer. Absolute Value For A Integer

We can see from the examples that an integer will be converted into an integer as an absolute value. The positive integers will be converted to the same value as an absolute value. The negative integers will be converted to the positive same numbers as integers. `55` absolute value is `55` and `-55` absolute value is `55`too.

# Absolute Value For A Floating Point

One of the most used scenarios for the abs() function or absolute value is for floating-point numbers. Absolute Value For A Floating Point

# Absolute Value For A Complex Number

abs() function also can be used for complex numbers. We will provide different complex numbers in these examples. Absolute Value For A Complex Number

# Absolute Value For A Binary Number

Binary numbers can be used for absolute calculation like below.

# Absolute Value For Octal

We can calculate the absolute values of the octal numbers like below. Absolute Value For Octal

We can also use abs() function in order to calculate hexadecimal values. Python is a practical language where we can calculate the absolute values of the given list items. We will use the `map()` function and provide the abs() function with the list.
