Python | Convert tuple to float value

Sometimes, while working with tuple, we can have a problem in which, we need to convert a tuple to floating-point number in which first element represents integer part and next element represents a decimal part. Let’s discuss certain way in which this can be achieved.

Method : Using join() + float() + str() + generator expression

The combination of above functionalities can solve this problem. In this, we 1st convert the tuple elements into a string, then join them and convert them to desired integer.





# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Convert tuple to float
# using join() + float() + str() + generator expression
# initialize tuple
test_tup = (4, 56)
# printing original tuple 
print("The original tuple : " + str(test_tup))
# Convert tuple to float
# using join() + float() + str() + generator expression
res = float('.'.join(str(ele) for ele in test_tup))
# printing result
print("The float after conversion from tuple is : " + str(res))


Output :

The original tuple : (4, 56)
The float after conversion from tuple is : 4.56
