How to Convert String into Integer in Python


How to Convert String into Integer in Python

All information types in Python, including numbers and strings, are objects. Regularly when composing Python code, you should change over one information type to another. For instance, to play out a numerical procedure on a number spoke to as a string, it should be changed over into a number. 

In this instructional exercise, we'll tell you the best way to change over a Python string to a number. 

Python int() Function

The underlying int() work restores a decimal number article from a given number or string. It takes the accompanying structure: 

int(x, base=10)

The capacity acknowledges two contentions: 

x - String or number to be changed over to a number. 

base - It speaks to the numeral arrangement of the main contention. Its worth can be 0 and 2–36. This contention is discretionary, if no base is given, the default is 10 (decimal number). 

Typically, numbers are communicated in hexadecimal (base 16), decimal (base 10), octal (base 8), or parallel (base 2) documentation. 

On the off chance that the given contention can't be spoken to as a whole number, the capacity will toss a ValueError special case. 

Converting a Python String into Integer

In Python, a 'string' is a rundown of characters which is proclaimed utilizing single ('), twofold ("), or triple statements ("""). 

On the off chance that a variable that contains just numbers is announced utilizing cites, its information type is set to String. Think about the accompanying model: 

days = "23"

The sort() work shows us that the days variable is a String object. 


How about we attempt to do a number related procedure on the variable: 


Python will toss a TypeError exemption blunder since it can't play out an expansion estimation with string and number: 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects

To change over a string portrayal of a decimal number into an int, pass the string to the int() work, which restores a decimal number: 

days = "23"
days_int = int(days)
<type 'int'>

In the event that you presently attempt to crunch the numbers, the entirety activity will be performed effectively: 


On the off chance that the number incorporates commas, separating thousands, millions, and so forth, you have to eliminate the commas prior to passing the number to the int() work: 

total = "1,000,000"int(total.replace(",", ""))

When changing over strings that speak to numbers in various number frameworks, ensure you utilize the right base. 

For instance, in the hexadecimal framework, the number 54732 is spoken to as D5CF. To change it over to a decimal number you have to utilize base 16: 

int("D5CF", 16)

On the off chance that you pass the D5CF string to the int() work without setting a base, it will toss a ValueError exemption: 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'D5CF'


In Python, you can change a string over to a number utilizing the int() work.
