# Calculate the Absolute Value (Solution)

**00:00**
Okay. The first instruction is virtually identical to the one from the previous exercise, so this one should be fairly easy. You define a variable called `num`

and assign a floating-point number obtained from the user. So, enter a number.

**00:20**
Now, you can print the message onto the screen using an f-string: `f"The absolute value of {num} is {}"`

**00:29**
and here inside the second pair of curly brackets, you can write `abs()`

, which is short for absolute value, and you pass your number. Now, let’s save and reload it. Let’s enter `-10`

, as in the example. Great.

You’re getting the intended result. You solved this exercise quickly. The next exercise may be a bit more challenging.
