numpy.fabs() in Python

numpy.fabs() function is used to compute the absolute values element-wise. This function returns the absolute values (positive magnitude) of the data in arr. It always return absolute values in floats.

Syntax : numpy.fabs(arr, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting=’same_kind’, order=’K’, dtype=None, ufunc ‘fabs’)

Parameters :
arr : [array_like] The array of numbers for which the absolute values are required.
out : [ndarray, optional] A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned.
**kwargs : Allows to pass keyword variable length of argument to a function. It is used when we want to handle named argument in a function.
where : [array_like, optional] True value means to calculate the universal functions(ufunc) at that position, False value means to leave the value in the output alone.

Return : [ndarray or scalar] The absolute values of arr, the returned values are always floats.
