How to use absolute value method(Math.abs) in JavaScript

In JavaScript, we can use the Math.abs( ) method to get the absolute value of a given number.

Note: The absolute value of number is never negative.

Examples and Usage

const num = -1233

console.log(Math.abs(num)) // 1233

// The absolute value of -1233 is 1233

console.log(Math.abs(5-8)) // 3

console.log(Math.abs(-1+9)) // 8

The Math.abs() method returns zero, if you pass an empty array or a string.

console.log(Math.abs('')) // 0

console.log(Math.abs([ ])) // 0
