# Python - Get the first digit of a number

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the first digit of a number in Python with the help of examples.

In Python, strings are the sequence of characters, where the index of the first character is `0`, the second character is `1`, third character is `3` and the last character index `-1`.

Consider, we have a following number:

``pin = 67683``

To get the first digit of a number:

1. Convert the number to a string using the str() Function.

2. Use the square brackets syntax `[]` to access the first character of a string.

3. Convert the result back to a number to get the first digit of the number.

Here is an example:

``````pin = 67683
first_digit_str = str(pin)

result = int(first_digit_str) # str to int
print(result)``````

Output:

``6``

In the example above, first we converted the number to a string, so we can use the square brackets syntax on it.

You can access the characters of a string, by using the square brackets syntax and specifying an index.

0 is the index of a first character in the string. At last we have used the int() function to convert the string to a number.

You can also shorten the above code in a single line like this:

``````pin = 67683
first_digit = int(str(pin))

print(first_digit)``````
