Python: Implicit Type Conversion

In Python, this method is used to converts automatically one data type to another data type. This process doesn't need any user involvement. 

Example:

a = 7
b = 3.0
print(type(a))
print(type(b))

c = a + b
print('c =',c)
print(type(c))

d = a * b
print('d =',d)
print(type(d))

Output:

<class 'int'>
<class 'float'>
c = 10.0
<class 'float'>
d = 21.0
<class 'float'>

In the above Example,

  • We will look at the data type of all four objects respectively.
  • In the output, we can see the data type of a is an integer while the data type of is a float.
  • Also, we can see the b has a float data type because Python always converts smaller data types to larger data types to avoid the loss of data.
