#### 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=20y=-23.2print('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=65d=43print (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=15y=101print ('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]print ('Minimum of MyList :', min(MyList))`

Output:

Minimum of MyList : 21
