Meehzam I'm sure you already know this, but Python is a snake and the name of a programming language. Phyton is of course the Suel god of Nature, Beauty, and Farming, whose symbol is a scimitar in front of an oak tree. 🤣

Abs of -87 is 87 a=87 a+3= 90 90%8 = 2

Now this is really starting to drive me crazy 😜 Why are so many people (not to mention any names Jasurbek Abdijalilov Sobirjon o'g'li Alexander Genereaux Techno Reda ) posting the same answer hours and hours and hours after someone else already posted it? 🤔 Don't get me wrong - it's great that you are participating and helping! Just strange that you didn't see the other posts.... Did you think the request for help was a coding challenge? P.S. if you really want to help, rather than just posting the output of the code, also give an explanation, which was asked for 🙂

David Ashton The sad truth: For some, it is more important to show that they know the answer than to help the questioner. Sometimes we should hold back our own ego a little.

Giovanni Reale you, too, get 10/10 for good intentions but 2/10 for powers of observation since the answer 2 was posted 12 hours before you did 🤣

Inglés: Absolute of -87 is 87. So a=87 a=(87+3)%8 a= 90%8 8*11=88. 90-88=2=a a=2 Español: Valor absoluto de -87 es 87. Entonces a=87 a=(87+3)%8 a= 90%8 8*11=88. 90-88=2=a a=2

Some people say that abs are the muscles near your waist but I get no Google results for Phyton.

a = abs(-87) => 87 a=(a+3)%8; => 87+3 =90 print(a) => 90%8 = 2 ---------------------

Abs means that you negative number will turns positive. Then add the a value with 3. Then computer will find the a value remainder

a = abs(-87) #a=87 a=(a+3)%8; #a=(87+3)%8=90%8=2 print(a) # the printed value is 2

|-87| = 87 87 + 3 = 90 90/8 --> remainder = 2
