# Challenge: Absolute Value

Test yourself and implement what you have learned so far in this challenge.

## We'll cover the following

## Problem Statement

You need to create a function `absolute`

which computes the absolute value of a given number.

### Input

The input of the function is a number `x`

of type `Double`

whose absolute value you want to compute.

### Output

The output will be the absolute value of `x`

.

### Sample Input

```
-5
```

### Sample Output

```
5
```

### Test Yourself

Write your code in the given area. Try the exercise by yourself first, but if you get stuck, the solution has been provided. Good luck!

def absolute(x: Double): Double = {// Write your code herereturn -1 // Remove this line after writing your code}

Let’s go over the solution review in the next lesson.
