Can someone tell me what is wrong with this code? It is Codecademy review of functions. The error states that it is not returning an absolute value for integers, and I presume floats too.... def distance_from_zero(x): first = type(x) if first == "int": return abs(x) elif first == "float": return abs(x) else: return "This isn't an integer or a float!"

when you put "if first == "int": you're comparing with a string: 'int', for type just use: if fist == int: you would see the int in purple I think
