C uses formatted output. The 'printf' function has a special formatting character (%) — a character following this defines a certain format for a variable:   %c — characters   %d — integers   %f  — floats     printf("%c %d %f", ch, i, x); NOTE: Format statement enclosed in "..." , variables follow after. Make sure order of format and variable data types match up. ➝ Remember to use  🔍SEARCH. . .  bar to avoid from posting duplicate threads! https://code.sololearn.com/W26q4WtwSP8W/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/WvG0MJq2dQ6y/

This is used to format strings according to the args provided when printing. And this thing is used in many languages like C/C++, java, C#, python, etc. I ll the C style to demonstrate it here. printf("Hello today is %dst of %dth month", 1, 5 ) //Output: Hello today is the 1st of 5th month
