"What is %d %f %c"? In regards to C language tutorial, the course you are enrolled in, Those are format/conversion specifiers that defines type of data to be read in or printed as output. More about format/conversion specifiers, check these out http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/cstdio/scanf/ http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/cstdio/printf/ P.S. I see you wondered what "tags" is, so allow me to introduce you ... https://code.sololearn.com/W3uiji9X28C1/?ref=app


%d - used for integer value %f - used for float value %c - used for a character value when displaying on the screen


In C, %d represents integer values %f for float values and %c for character values


All are format specifiers %d represents working with int %f represents working with float %c represents working with char int occupies 2 bytes of memory float occupies 4 bytes of memory char occupies 1 byte of memory Any function which is using these formatspecfiers is caaled as formatted functions Ex : printf(); scanf(); Functions which are not using the formatspecifiers are called as unformatted functions Ex: puts(); gets(); putchar(); getchar(); putc(); getc()
