Convert integer to string in Python

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:



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:

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
"% s" % num

3. Using .format() function

Syntax: ‘{}’.format(integer)

Example:

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
"{}".format(num)

4. Using f-string

Syntax: f'{integer}’

Example:

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))
