You can change exact numbers to machine precision (approximate) numbers by using the built-in function N. But there is no way to change a symbol to an approximate number until after a number has been assigned to it. I've no idea if the above is helpful to you or not. But it is unlikely you are going to get any more helpful/meaningful answers until you post details of the problem you are trying to solve, preferably with Mathematica code.
