How to Convert 2.9k to 2900 in Python?

Estimated read time 1 min read

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)
        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)

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