# Python program to Convert a elements in a list of Tuples to Float

• Last Updated : 24 Oct, 2020

Given a Tuple list, convert all possible convertible elements to float.

Input : test_list = [(“3”, “Gfg”), (“1”, “26.45”)]
Output : [(3.0, ‘Gfg’), (1.0, 26.45)]
Explanation : Numerical strings converted to floats.

Input : test_list = [(“3”, “Gfg”)]
Output : [(3.0, ‘Gfg’)]
Explanation : Numerical strings converted to floats.

Method #1 : Using loop + isalpha() + float()

In this, we use a loop to iterate for all the tuples, check for alphabets using isalpha(), which cannot be converted to float, and for the rest of the elements float() is used to convert.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Convert Tuple List elements to Float``# Using loop + isalpha() + float`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[(``"3"``, ``"Gfg"``), (``"1"``, ``"26.45"``), (``"7.32"``, ``"8"``), (``"Gfg"``, ``"8"``)]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `res ``=` `[]``for` `tup ``in` `test_list:``    ``temp ``=` `[]``    ``for` `ele ``in` `tup:``         ` `        ``# check for string``        ``if` `ele.isalpha():``            ``temp.append(ele)``        ``else``:``             ` `            ``# convert to float``            ``temp.append(``float``(ele))``    ``res.append((temp[``0``],temp[``1``]))`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"The converted list : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output:

The original list is : [(‘3’, ‘Gfg’), (‘1’, ‘26.45’), (‘7.32’, ‘8’), (‘Gfg’, ‘8’)]
The converted list : [(3.0, ‘Gfg’), (1.0, 26.45), (7.32, 8.0), (‘Gfg’, 8.0)]

Method #2 : Using loop + isalpha() + float() + list comprehension

In this, we perform the task of iterating through inner tuples using list comprehension.

Output:

The original list is : [(‘3’, ‘Gfg’), (‘1’, ‘26.45’), (‘7.32’, ‘8’), (‘Gfg’, ‘8’)]
The converted list : [(3.0, ‘Gfg’), (1.0, 26.45), (7.32, 8.0), (‘Gfg’, 8.0)]
