There are additional variations on defining strings that make it easier to include things such as carriage returns, backslashes and Unicode characters.

Simple operators can be executed on numbers and strings:

one = 1
two = 2
three = one + two
print(three)

hello = "hello"
world = "world"
helloworld = hello + " " + world
print(helloworld)
