Strings and text
Any time you want to use text in Python, you are using strings.
Python understands you want to use a string if you use the double-quotes symbol.
Try the program below:
# Text x = "Nancy" print(x) # Combine numbers and text s = "My lucky number is %d, what is yours?" % 7 print(s) # alternative method of combining numbers and text s = "My lucky number is " + str(7) + ", what is yours?" print(s) # print character by index print(x) # print piece of string print(x[0:3])
What you see on success
Try the exercises below
1. Make a program that displays your favourite actor/actress. 2. Try to print the word 'lucky' inside s. 3. Try to print the day, month, year in the form "Today is 2/2/2016".
2. Print the word lucky inside s
# Text s = "My lucky number is %d, what is yours?" % 7 print(s[3:8])
3. Print the day, month, year
s = "The date is %d/%d/%d" % (7, 7, 2016) print(s)
