float() method will convert integers to floats. To use this function, add an integer inside of the parentheses:
In this case,
57 will be converted to
You can also use this with a variable. Let’s declare
f as equal to
57, and then print out the new float:
f = 57 print(float(f))
By using the
float() function, we’ve converted an integer to a float.
