# How to Convert 2.9k to 2900 in Python?

To convert a string representation of a number with the “k” suffix (e.g., “2.9k”) to its numerical equivalent (e.g., 2900), you can use the following Python function:

``````def convert_k_to_number(k_string):
if 'k' in k_string:
return int(float(k_string[:-1]) * 1000)
else:
return int(k_string)``````

In this function, we check if the input string contains the “k” character. If it does, we remove the “k” character using `k_string[:-1]`, convert the remaining string to a float using `float()`, multiply it by 1000, and finally convert it to an integer using `int()`. This converts the “k” value to its numerical equivalent.

If the input string does not contain the “k” character, we simply convert it to an integer using `int()`.

Here’s an example of how you can use the function:

``````k_string = "2.9k"
number = convert_k_to_number(k_string)
print(number)``````

In this example, the input string “2.9k” is converted to its numerical equivalent, which is 2900, and then printed to the console.
