Returns an absolute value as an integer
Device + Agent
Any numerical value
Integer — the absolute value
This function returns the absolute value of the passed number: its magnitude without the sign. Negative numbers become positive; positive numbers stay as they are. So the absolute value of -10 is 10, while the absolute value of 42 is 42.
This function returns an integer, so if -10.014 is passed, math.abs() will return 10, not 10.014.
The math.abs() function is particularly useful for calculating the difference between two values when you are unsure which of the two may be the highest, so taking one from from the offer could yield either positive or a negative number.
