why use format() instead of just adding it with just +

Why do: name = boii

print('is your name really {} ?'.format(name))

Instead of: name = boii

print('is your name really' + name + '?

I do not understand, can somebody explain it to me?

it really a matter of preference. personally I think format() is much cleanner than concatenating stuff. It's like you have two tools that can achieve the same purpose, but some people perfer one or another. hope that make sense.
