## Python: Tips of the Day

F strings:

It is a common practice to add variables inside strings. F strings are by far the coolest way of doing it. To appreciate the f strings more, let's first perform the operation with the format function.

name = 'Owen'
age = 25
print("{} is {} years old".format(name, age))

Output:

Owen is 25 years old

We specify the variables that go inside the curly braces by using the format function at the end. F strings allow for specifying the variables inside the string.

name = 'Owen'
age = 25
print(f"{name} is {age} years old")

Output:

Owen is 25 years old

F strings are easier to follow and type. Moreover, they make the code more readable.

A, B, C = {2, 4, 6}
print(A, B, C)
A, B, C = ['p', 'q', 'r']
print(A, B, C)

Output:

2 4 6
p q r
