• 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

 `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

 `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

 `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

 `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))`
