Hi Ervan! We believe the same thing was discussed in many times here too. I could find something from the Internet. It's really cool explanation https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7664779/what-is-the-formal-difference-between-print-and-return

Ervan return is just return value in function but can't print anything on terminal. print function in used to print results on terminal. return is used in function to return value back to the function. You can print this return value either directly calling function or you can assign returned value to a variable then print that variable. def returnExample(): a = 10 b = 20 return a + b #---------- print (returnExample ()) #---------- result = returnExample () print (result)

Print will send whatever is inside the ÔÇś( )ÔÇÖ to the console. That way you can see it. Return, well, thats a little complicated. It give back a value. For example, if you have a function: // BigNumberIs( X, Y ): Return Answer // #Now what it does is return the number thatÔÇÖs bigger. So BigNumberIs(6, 7) will be 7. But you wont see that number. It wont be printed. Its just for the computer to use. It just replaces the function with the answer. 12 x BiggerNumberIs(7, 8) ==> 12 x 8 ==> 96 /// Just like that: print(BiggerNumberIs(4,9)) ==> print(9) ///==> 9 <==\\\

print prints the value to the console, return gives back a value from a function or method. So the value from print is the output, return is a value you can use for further computation

In python, print is a function that accepts many arguments then writes them on the stdout (console), However, return is a keyword used in a function to return some value when being called NOTE: when using return keyword in a function it returns some value and stops the process of that func. Syntax: #print print("hello", "world") #prints hello world #return def greet(): return "hello world" greet() #it returns "hello world" print(greet()) #print the value returned by greet function
