# How to find absolute number of a given number in c# programming

In c# programming we easily find absolute number of a given number. We can use Abs function, which is include in Math class. Lets take an simple example

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1

{

class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

sbyte sortbyte1 = -12, sortbyte2 = 12;

short shnumber1 = -13, shnumber2 = 13;

int integer1 = -14, integer2 = 14;

long long1 = -15, long2 = 15;

float float1 = -16.0f, float2 = 16.0f;

double double1 = -17.1, double2 = 17.1;

Decimal decimal1 = -18.0m, decimal2 = 18.0m;

Console.WriteLine();

Console.WriteLine("SortByte: 1) {0,-2} {1,-2}", Math.Abs(sortbyte1), Math.Abs(sortbyte2));

Console.WriteLine("Integer 16 bit: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(shnumber1), Math.Abs(shnumber2));

Console.WriteLine("Integer 32 bit: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(integer1), Math.Abs(integer2));

Console.WriteLine("Integer 64 bit: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(long1), Math.Abs(long2));

Console.WriteLine("Single: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(float1), Math.Abs(float2));

Console.WriteLine("Double: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(double1), Math.Abs(double2));

Console.WriteLine("Decimal: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(decimal1), Math.Abs(decimal2));

Console.ReadKey();

}

}

}

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1

{

class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

sbyte sortbyte1 = -12, sortbyte2 = 12;

short shnumber1 = -13, shnumber2 = 13;

int integer1 = -14, integer2 = 14;

long long1 = -15, long2 = 15;

float float1 = -16.0f, float2 = 16.0f;

double double1 = -17.1, double2 = 17.1;

Decimal decimal1 = -18.0m, decimal2 = 18.0m;

Console.WriteLine();

Console.WriteLine("SortByte: 1) {0,-2} {1,-2}", Math.Abs(sortbyte1), Math.Abs(sortbyte2));

Console.WriteLine("Integer 16 bit: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(shnumber1), Math.Abs(shnumber2));

Console.WriteLine("Integer 32 bit: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(integer1), Math.Abs(integer2));

Console.WriteLine("Integer 64 bit: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(long1), Math.Abs(long2));

Console.WriteLine("Single: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(float1), Math.Abs(float2));

Console.WriteLine("Double: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(double1), Math.Abs(double2));

Console.WriteLine("Decimal: 1) {0,-2} 2) {1,-2}", Math.Abs(decimal1), Math.Abs(decimal2));

Console.ReadKey();

}

}

}

Here Math class provide Abs static method for returning absolute value of a given number. Abs function is overloaded by some data types like double, decimal, Int16, Int32 and SByte.

**Code generate the following output**
