To replace commas with periods in text for decimal numbers in Python, you can use the
`replace() method of the
Here is an example of how you could do this:
text = "The total cost is $1,234.56" # Replace commas with periods text = text.replace(',', '.') print(text)
This will print the following output:
The total cost is $1.234.56
Keep in mind that this will only work if the commas are used as decimal separators. If the commas are used as thousands separators, you will need to use a different approach to correctly convert the numbers to decimal format.
