Type coercion is the process of automatically or implicitly converting values from one data type to another, such as strings to numbers.
This process is used to ensure that data is in the correct format for a given operation.
Type coercion can also be used to convert values to a common type when two values of different types are compared.

In computer science, type conversion, type casting, type coercion, and type juggling are different ways of changing an expression from one data type to another. An example would be the conversion of an integer value into a floating point value or its textual representation as a string, and vice versa. Type conversions can take advantage of certain features of type hierarchies or data representations. Two important aspects of a type conversion are whether it happens implicitly (automatically) or explicitly, and whether the underlying data representation is converted from one representation into another, or a given representation is merely reinterpreted as the representation of another data type. In general, both primitive and compound data types can be converted.
