I am currently going through the codecademy course learning python. I am not trying to solve a problem, just some info. My current problem is:
def square(n): """Returns the square of a number.""" squared = n ** 2 print "%d squared is %d." % (n, squared) return squared # Call the square function on line 10! Make sure to # include the number 10 between the parentheses. square(10)
My question is, on the print line, the “%” are followed by a “d”. In earlier problems i have seen them with “s” and even ": \ ". I am wondering if there is a site or document that can tell me what all these are used for and when im supposed to use each one.
