## Python math.fabs() method

math.fabs() method is a library method of math module, it is used to get the absolute value of a number, it accepts a number (that can be either positive integer/float or negative integer/float) and returns an absolute value in the float type.

Syntax of math.fabs() method:

```    math.fabs(n)
```

Parameter(s): n – a number or a numeric expression.

Return value: float – it returns a float value, which is an absolute value of given number/numeric expression n.

Example:

```    Input:
a = -10
b = 10.23

# function call
print(math.fabs(a))
print(math.fabs(b))

Output:
10.0
10.23
```

### Python code to demonstrate example of math.fabs() method

```# Python code to demonstrate example of
# math.fabs() method

# importing math module
import math

# numbers
a = 10      # +ve integer
b = 10.23   # +ve float
c = -10     # -ve integer
d = -10.23  # -ve float

# printing absolute values
print("fabs(a): ", math.fabs(a))
print("fabs(b): ", math.fabs(b))
print("fabs(c): ", math.fabs(c))
print("fabs(d): ", math.fabs(d))
```

Output

```fabs(a):  10.0
fabs(b):  10.23
fabs(c):  10.0
fabs(d):  10.23
```
