To show: The static_cast usage in C++ program for type casting (conversion)



#include <iostream>

using namespace std;


int main(void)


int sum = 1000;

int count = 21;

double average1 = sum/count;


cout<<"Before conversion = "<<average1<<endl;

double average2 = static_cast<double>(sum)/count;

cout<<"After conversion = "<<average2<<endl;

return 0;



Output example:


Before conversion = 47

After conversion = 47.619
