Question

To print strings and numbers in Python, is there any other way than doing something like:

first = 10
second = 20
print "First number is %(first)d and second number is %(second)d" % {"first": first, "second":second}

Accepted Answer

Using print function without parentheses works with older versions of Python but is no longer supported on Python3, so you have to put the arguments inside parentheses. However, there are workarounds, as mentioned in the answers to this question. Since the support for Python2 has ended in Jan 1st 2020, the answer has been modified to be compatible with Python3.

You could do any of these (and there may be other ways):

(1)  print("First number is {} and second number is {}".format(first, second))
(1b) print("First number is {first} and number is {second}".format(first=first, second=second)) 

or

(2) print('First number is', first, 'second number is', second) 

(Note: A space will be automatically added afterwards when separated from a comma)

or

(3) print('First number %d and second number is %d' % (first, second))

or

(4) print('First number is ' + str(first) + ' second number is' + str(second))
  

Using format() (1/1b) is preferred where available.

Yes there is. The preferred syntax is to favor str.format over the deprecated % operator.

print "First number is {} and second number is {}".format(first, second)

The other answers explain how to produce a string formatted like in your example, but if all you need to do is to print that stuff you could simply write:

first = 10
second = 20
print "First number is", first, "and second number is", second
2012/08/18

first,second = 10, 20

print "First number is {}  and second number is {}".format(first,second)

In Python 3.6

a, b=1, 2 

print ("Value of variable a is: ", a, "and Value of variable b is :", b)

print(f"Value of a is: {a}")

if you are using 3.6 try this

 k = 250
 print(f"User pressed the: {k}")

Output: User pressed the: 250
