Sum of two strings in Python

How do I sum two string inputs using Python?

Answer: Technically, you can’t perform a sum operation on a string input. However, you can join strings together to form a new string.

Simply store the two strings in a variable and combine them into a new variable.

string_1 = input("Enter first string: ")
string_2 = input("Enter second string: ")

res = string_1 + string_2


Enter first string: Hello
Enter second string: Jo
