# absolute value in lua

To find the absolute value in Lua, you can use the `math.abs()`

function. Here are the steps to calculate the absolute value:

- Use the
`math.abs()`

function and pass the number as an argument. - The function will return the absolute value of the number.

For example, if you want to find the absolute value of -5, you can use the following code:

```
local number = -5
local absoluteValue = math.abs(number)
```

In this code, the `math.abs()`

function takes the variable `number`

as an argument and returns the absolute value of -5, which is 5. The result is stored in the variable `absoluteValue`

.
