Given a float value and we have to convert the value to the string using str() function.

Python code to convert a float value to the string value

```# Python code to convert a float value
# to the string value

# float value
f_value = 1.23456

# converting to the string value
s_value = str(f_value)

# printing the float & string values with their types
print("f_value: ", f_value)
print("type(f_value): ", type(f_value))

print("s_value: ", s_value)
print("type(s_value): ", type(s_value))

# another operation by multiplying the value
print("f_value*4: ", f_value*4)
print("s_value*4: ", s_value*4)
```

Output

```f_value:  1.23456
type(f_value):  <class 'float'>
s_value:  1.23456
type(s_value):  <class 'str'>
f_value*4:  4.93824
s_value*4:  1.234561.234561.234561.23456
```

Code explanation:

In the above code f_value is a float variable contains a float value, we are converting f_value to the string by using “str() function” and storing the result in s_value variable. For further verification of the types – we are printing the types of both variables with their values and also printing their 4 times multiplied value.
