Numeric Functions


abs ( ) : Returns an absolute value of a number. The argument may be an integer or a floating point number.

Synatx:

abs (x)

Example:

x=20
y=-23.2
print('x = ', abs(x))
print('y = ', abs(y))

Output:

x = 20

y = 23.2

ord ( ) : Returns the ASCII value for the given Unicode character. This function is inverse of chr() function.

Sytanx:

ord (c)

Example:

c= 'a'
d= 'A'
print ('c = ',ord (c))
print ('A = ',ord (d))

Output:

c = 97

A = 65

chr ( ) : Returns the Unicode character for the given ASCII value. This function is inverse of ord() function.

Syntax:

chr (i)

Example:

c=65
d=43
print (chr (c))
prin t(chr (d))

Output:

A

+

bin ( ) : Returns a binary string prefixed with “0b” for the given integer number.

Note: format () can also be used instead of this function.

Syntax:

bin (i)

Example:

x=15
y=101
print ('15 in binary : ',bin (x))
print ('101 in binary : ',bin (y))

Output:

15 in binary : 0b1111

101 in binary : 0b1100101

min ( ) : Returns the minimum value in a list.

Syntax:

min (list)

Example:

MyList = [21,76,98,23]
