How To Convert Integers to Floats in Python 3

Python’s float() method will convert integers to floats. To use this function, add an integer inside of the parentheses:

float(57)

In this case, 57 will be converted to 57.0.

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))
Output
57.0

By using the float() function, we’ve converted an integer to a float.
