In String formating using %, What does here 5 means in 5.2f ?

I tried many examples with different number there in place of 5 but I didn't noticed any change.

It's the width. https://python-reference.readthedocs.io/en/latest/docs/str/formatting.html Notice that this is an older style of formatting and is no longer recommended. Read more about it here: https://realpython.com/python-string-formatting/

Simon Sauter Thank you! Actually I'm trying to understand different way of formatting strings. I normally use str.format() or f-string
