What should one add a space between '?' and " in the input ()?

In the first two lines of percent_letter.py:

user_string = input("What's your word? ") user_num = input("What's your number? ")

What's the purpose of the space between ? and " ?

User input will be inserted directly after the string, so without the space you'd get something looking like this:

What's your number?5

The space is added for readability. It'll push the input one space:

What's your number? 5
