1. String Methods

What are String Methods?

There are multiple functions you can apply to strings. In this lesson, we will go over them and explain them to you. You can refer back to this page if you forget any of these!

How do you use String Methods?

To use string methods, all you have to do is call the string, add a dot after that and call the name of the function you would like to use.

z = "Hello"

In the example above, we referred back to the name of the variable and applied the string method on the variable.

However, you can also apply methods directly to a string as well!
