# IMABS

Formulas / IMABS
Calculate the absolute value of a complex number.
`IMABS(inumber)`
• inumber - a complex number

## Examples

• `=IMABS("5+12i")`

The IMBAS function in Sourcetable can be used to calculate the absolute value of a complex number that is represented in exponential notation. This returns a value of 13, which is the absolute value of the complex number 5+12i.

• `=IMABS("3+4i")`

The IMBAS function can also be used to calculate the absolute value of a complex number that is represented in rectangular coordinates. This returns a value of 5, which is the absolute value of the complex number 3+4i.

## Summary

The IMABS function returns the absolute value of a complex number (represented by x + yi or x + yj), which is the magnitude of the complex number.

• The IMABS function returns a complex number in the form x + yi or x + yj.
• IMABS is used to find the absolute value of a complex number, which is the distance from the origin (0,0) on a complex plane.

What is the IMABS function?
