Thanks man!
The % operator is like a placeholder.
Let’s say you have:

console.log(“my %s”, “string”)
> “my string”

In this case, the second argument (“string”) will be replaced at %s.

There is also a %f for float numbers, and it’s cool because you can do something like:

console.log(“my %.2f”, 12.3456789)
> 12.34
