# Python Absolute Value Python Absolute Value – The abs () method returns the full value of your given number. If a number is a complex number, then abs () removes its complexity and returns its magnitude.

## abs() Parameters

`abs()` method takes a single argument:

num – A number whose full value is to be returned. The number can be:

• integer
• floating number
• complex number

## Python Absolute Return value from abs()

abs() method returns the absolute value of the given number.

• The return value also will be an integer – For integers
• The return value will also be float – For floating numbers
• Return value will be the magnitude of the input – For complex numbers

## Example 1: Float number and Integer

```# random integer
integer = -20
print('Absolute value of -20 is:', abs(integer))

#random floating number
floating = -22.33
print('Absolute value of -22.33 is:', abs(floating))```

### Output:

```Absolute value of -20 is: 20
Absolute value of -22.33 is: 22.33```

## Example 2: Get magnitude of a complex number

```# random complex number
complex = (3 - 6j)
print('Magnitude of 3 - 6j is:', abs(complex))```

### Output:

`Magnitude of 3 - 6j is: 6.708203932499369` ### C++ Calculator Using Switch Case
