code

# code
# gfg contains string 10
gfg = "10"
  
# using the int(), string is auto converted to int
print(int(gfg)+20)

Output:

30

Example 2: Converting a Python String to float:

Python3

filter_none

brightness_4
code

# code
gfg = "10"
  
# float(gfg) gives 10.0
print(float(gfg)+2.0

chevron_right


Output:



12.0

Example 3: Converting a Python int to a String:

This is achieved by using str() function as shown below

Python3

code

# code
gfg = 100
  
# str(gfg) gives '100'
print(str(gfg)+" is a 3 digit number")
  
# concatination is performed between them
print(str(gfg)+"200")

chevron_right


Output:

100 is a 3 digit number
100200

Example 4: Converting a Python float to a String

This is achieved by using float() function as shown below

Python3

code

# code
gfg = 20.0
  
# str(gfg) becomes '20.0'
print(str(gfg)+"is now a string")
  
# no addition is performed. concatenated output
print(str(gfg)+"30.0")

chevron_right


Output:

20.0is now a string
