why did we add a %n after %s?
why couldn't we just use the %s
Jennifer NordellTreehouse Teacher
Hi there! The %n is used as a new line character. After this prints out, there will be a new line printed. You could also use, a "\n" but be aware that these can be platform specific where the %n is platform neutral and is advised for use.
Hope this helps!
