Print multiple arguments in Python

This is just a snippet of my code:

print("Total score for %s is %s  ", name, score)

But I want it to print out:

"Total score for (name) is (score)"

where name is a variable in a list and score is an integer. This is Python 3.3 if that helps at all.

There are many ways to do this. To fix your current code using %-formatting, you need to pass in a tuple:

  1. Pass it as a tuple:

    print("Total score for %s is %s" % (name, score))
    

A tuple with a single element looks like ("this",).

Here are some other common ways of doing it:

  1. Pass it as a dictionary:

    print("Total score for %(n)s is %(s)s" % {"n": name, "s": score})
    

There"s also new-style string formatting, which might be a little easier to read:

  1. Use new-style string formatting:

    print("Total score for {} is {}".format(name, score))
    
  2. Use new-style string formatting with numbers (useful for reordering or printing the same one multiple times):

    print("Total score for {0} is {1}".format(name, score))
    
  3. Use new-style string formatting with explicit names:

    print("Total score for {n} is {s}".format(n=name, s=score))
    
  4. Concatenate strings:

    print("Total score for " + str(name) + " is " + str(score))
    

The clearest two, in my opinion:

  1. Just pass the values as parameters:

    print("Total score for", name, "is", score)
    

    If you don"t want spaces to be inserted automatically by print in the above example, change the sep parameter:

    print("Total score for ", name, " is ", score, sep="")
    

    If you"re using Python 2, won"t be able to use the last two because print isn"t a function in Python 2. You can, however, import this behavior from __future__:

    from __future__ import print_function
    
  2. Use the new f-string formatting in Python 3.6:

    print(f"Total score for {name} is {score}")

There are many ways to print that.

Let"s have a look with another example.

a = 10
b = 20
c = a + b

#Normal string concatenation
print("sum of", a , "and" , b , "is" , c) 

#convert variable into str
print("sum of " + str(a) + " and " + str(b) + " is " + str(c)) 

# if you want to print in tuple way
print("Sum of %s and %s is %s: " %(a,b,c))  

#New style string formatting
print("sum of {} and {} is {}".format(a,b,c)) 

#in case you want to use repr()
print("sum of " + repr(a) + " and " + repr(b) + " is " + repr(c))

EDIT :

#New f-string formatting from Python 3.6:
print(f"Sum of {a} and {b} is {c}")
