Python – Replace all numbers by K in given String

  • Last Updated : 05 Sep, 2020

Given a string containing numbers, replace each number by K.

Input : test_str = ‘G4G is 4 all No. 1 Geeks’, K = ‘#’
Output : G#G is # all No. # Geeks
Explanation : All numbers replaced by K.

Input : test_str = ‘G4G is 4 all No. Geeks’, K = ‘#’
Output : G#G is # all No. Geeks
Explanation : All numbers replaced by K.

Method #1 : Using replace() + isdigit()

In this, we check for numerics using isdigit() and replace() is used to perform the task of replacing the numbers by K.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Replace numbers by K in String
# Using replace() + isdigit()
  
# initializing string
test_str = 'G4G is 4 all No. 1 Geeks'
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# initializing K 
K = '@'
  
# loop for all characters
for ele in test_str:
    if ele.isdigit():
        test_str = test_str.replace(ele, K)
          
# printing result 
print("The resultant string : " + str(test_str)) 
Output
The original string is : G4G is 4 all No. 1 Geeks
The resultant string : G@G is @ all No. @ Geeks

Method #2 : Using regex() + sub()

In this, appropriate regex is used to identify digits and sub() is used to perform replace.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Replace numbers by K in String
# Using regex() + sub()
import re
  
# initializing string
test_str = 'G4G is 4 all No. 1 Geeks'
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# initializing K 
K = '@'
  
# using regex expression to solve problem 
res = re.sub(r'\d', K, test_str)
          
# printing result 
print("The resultant string : " + str(res)) 
Output
The original string is : G4G is 4 all No. 1 Geeks
The resultant string : G@G is @ all No. @ Geeks
