# [Tutor] blank space after a number

```Thanks a lot,
Hugo Yoshi!

As a beginner in Python, I do my best to satisfy my curiosity about some
features in the language; and, this one was the most difficult among my
"projects"!  :c)

Best regards,

# Formatting numbers from '01,' to '100'
# Many thanks to Bob Gailer and to Hugo Yoshi

a, b = 0, 1
while b < 10:
print '%i%i' % (a,b) + ',',
b = b+1
# what results in:
'''
01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, '''

while b < 100:
print '%i' % (b) + ',',
b = b+1
# what results in:
'''
01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,
19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36,
37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54,
55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72,
73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90,
91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100 '''

print 100
