Why I am getting IndexError: tuple index out of range when converting a float value to a string?

Show us the full traceback after expanding and reducing the example to 
the minimum needed to exhibit the problem.

Which works fine as it is.

 >>> xm = 3.0
 >>> print(str("{:6.5f}".format(xm)))
3.00000

He could, but it makes no difference for the print statement above.

Applying str to an str is redundant, as it applying it to a print argument.

 >>> print("{0:6.5f}".format(xm))
3.00000
