I think this is what you're looking for:

favorite_color = str(input("what is your favorite color? "))
print(f"the color {favorite_color} is a great color")

favorite_color = input("what is your favorite color?")
print("the color" + favorite_color + " is a great color!")
favorite_color = input("what is your favorite color")
print("the color {} is a great color".format(favorite_color))
