I'm currently working on a PHP project and I'm running into a small issue. I have a string variable that contains a numerical value and I need to convert it to a floating-point number.
I've tried looking into various resources and documentation, but I'm getting a bit confused with all the different functions and methods available in PHP. I just want to make sure I'm doing this correctly.
So, my question is: Is it possible to convert a string to a float in PHP? If so, could you please provide me with some guidance or an example of how to do it properly?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
