I'm not certain I've understood what you're trying to accomplish.
It seems to me that you don't need to create an array of Strings from your array of floats, as you mentioned these values would simply be concatenated to other Strings later on. Well, you could simply just "add" the float values to these other String values with the + operator, much like concatenating Strings the ol' fashioned way.

If you want to control how they values are formatted, such as how many digits you want after the decimal point, look at the "java.text.DecimalFormat" class. If you don't do this, a value such as 2.00f might appear as 1.99999999999 because of how Java treats real numbers.
I agree. Here's the link:
