# Multiple ways to parse to absolute number swift with code example This tutorial explains how to calculate the absolute value of a number in Swift programming.

• `abs()` function for Int type
• `fabs()` function for Double type
• `fabsf()` function for Float type
• Int `magnitude`

The absolute value of a number returns a number by removing the negative sign.

For example, The input number is -123, And the absolute value is 123. If the number is 11 and the absolute value is 11.

There are multiple ways to convert to absolute value,

• One way is using the Int magnitude property and
• Another way using `abs` for Int, `fabs` for double, and `fabsf` for float types

## Swift Convert to the absolute value

First Import the `foundation` into the code to use these methods

• `abs()` function for Int type

It returns the absolute value of a number.

``````import Foundation;

var number = -123
print(abs(number)) //123
number=1231
print(abs(number)) //1231``````
• `fabs()` function for Double type

It returns the absolute value of a number.

``````import Foundation;

var number:Double = -123.123
print(fabs(number)) //123.123``````
• `fabsf()` function for Float type

The `fabsf()` function accepts the Float type and returns absolute value.

``````import Foundation;

var number :Float = -123.123
print(fabsf(number))``````
• Use `Int magnitude` property of Int type
``````import Foundation;

var number = -345.123
print(number.magnitude) //345.123``````

## Conclusion

There are multiple ways we can convert to absolute value for a given number. The number can be Int, Float, or Double type
