Convert integer to string in Python
  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 22 Feb, 2021

In Python an integer can be converted into a string using the built-in str() function. The str() function takes in any python data type and converts it into a string. But use of the str() is not the only way to do so. This type of conversion can also be done using the “%s” keyword, the .format function or using f-string function.
Below is the list of possible ways to convert an integer to string in python:

1. Using str() function 

Syntax: str(integer_value)

Example:  

Python3

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

num = 10
 
# check  and print type of num variable
print(type(num))
 
# convert the num into string
converted_num = str(num)
 
# check  and print type converted_num variable
print(type(converted_num))

2. Using “%s” keyword



Syntax: “%s” % integer

Example: 

Python3

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

num = 10
 
# check  and print type of num variable
print(type(num))
 
# convert the num into string and print
converted_num = "% s" % num
print(type(converted_num))

3. Using .format() function

Syntax: ‘{}’.format(integer)

Example: 

Python3

filter_none

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

num = 10
 
# check  and print type of num variable
print(type(num))
 
# convert the num into string and print
converted_num = "{}".format(num)
print(type(converted_num))

4. Using f-string

Syntax: f'{integer}’

Example: 

Python3

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

num = 10
 
# check  and print type of num variable
print(type(num))
 
# convert the num into string
converted_num = f'{num}'
 
# print type of converted_num
print(type(converted_num))
