# Calculate the absolute value of float values in Numpy

To return the absolute value of float values, use the numpy.fabs() method in Python Numpy. This function returns the absolute values (positive magnitude) of the data in x. Complex values are not handled, use absolute to find the absolute values of complex data.

The out is a location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Create an array with float type using the array() method −

arr = np.array([76.7, 28.5, 91.4, -100.8, -120.2, 150.4, 200.7])


Display the array −

print("Array...", arr)

Get the type of the array −

print("Our Array type...", arr.dtype)


Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("Our Array Dimension...",arr.ndim)

Get the shape of the Array −

print("Our Array Shape...",arr.shape)


To return the absolute value of float values, use the numpy.fabs() method in Python Numpy −

print("Result...",np.fabs(arr))

## Example

import numpy as np

# Create an array with float type using the array() method
arr = np.array([76.7, 28.5, 91.4, -100.8, -120.2, 150.4, 200.7])

# Display the array
print("Array...", arr)

# Get the type of the array
print("Our Array type...", arr.dtype)

# Get the dimensions of the Array
print("Our Array Dimension...",arr.ndim)

# Get the shape of the Array
print("Our Array Shape...",arr.shape)

# To return the absolute value of float values, use the numpy.fabs() method in Python Numpy
print("Result...",np.fabs(arr))

## Output

Array...
[ 76.7 28.5 91.4 -100.8 -120.2 150.4 200.7]

Our Array type...
float64

Our Array Dimension...
1

Our Array Shape...
(7,)

Result...
[ 76.7 28.5 91.4 100.8 120.2 150.4 200.7]
