# Print a Character n Times in Python

In Python, the `print()` function is used to display some results on the output console. The `print()` function has evolved in Python. It started as a statement and it wasn’t until Python 3 that it was changed to a function.

We will discuss how to print a character n times in Python.

## Using the `*` operator to print a character n times in Python

The `*` operator can be used in different ways with different objects in Python. We can use it to perform arithmetic multiplication, unpack elements, and now we will discuss how to use it to print a character n times in Python.

In the `print()` function we can specify the character to be printed. We can use the `*` operator to mention how many times we need to print this value.

See the code below.

Output:

aaaaa

In the above example, we printed the character five times using the `*` operator.

In case, if you are using Python 2.x, here is the syntax.

In case, you want to use separator such as `_`, here is syntax to use separator.

Output:

a_a_a_a_a

As you can see, repeating character is separated by `-`.

## Using the `for` loop to print a character n times in Python

The `range()` function is used in Python to create a sequence between the provided range. We can iterate over this sequence with the `for` loop.

We can use the `for` loop to print a character n times in Python. For this, we will iterate over the sequence of required length and print the character in every iteration.

Output:

a
a
a
a
a

In the above example, we create a sequence using the `range()` function and print the character in every iteration of the sequence using the `for` loop. Note that the character is displayed in a new line in every iteration.

## Conclusion

In this tutorial, we discussed how to print a character n times in Python. There are two methods for this. In the first method, we used the `*` operator in the `print()` function to print it the required times. We also discussed the use of the `for` loop to print a character n times in Python.
