Conversion from int to float

In this tutorial we will learn how to convert an int type value to float type.

Conversion from int to float:

In this tutorial we will learn how to convert an int type value  to float type.


This program will take two int values from console and provide the division of these int values  to float type data. The line int a = Integer.parseInt(buffreader.readLine()); is used to read the int value from console and stored in a variable. The line float result = (float)a/b; converts the division result of a and b to float type data.



class inttofloat {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		try {
			BufferedReader buffreader = new BufferedReader(
					new InputStreamReader(;
			System.out.println("Enter first number:");
			int a = Integer.parseInt(buffreader.readLine());
			System.out.println("Enter second number:");
			int b = Integer.parseInt(buffreader.readLine());
			float result = (float) a / b;
			System.out.println("The result in float type is: " + result);
		} catch (Exception e) {
			System.out.println(" Error " + e);
