#### Python Print() Function Problem – Repeating a Printed Value on the same line

It’s my first time on stack so if you notice that i’m not following a certain etiquette please point it out.
I do not get upset, do not worry about my feelings.
Not new to I.T. or programming but python was a long time ago for me and i’m getting back into it.

Obligatory intro’s aside

PROBLEM : I understand how the `print()` function works, (at least i think i do).
I’m trying (as an exercise in learning) to print a value that repeats on the
same line, but it’s just not working.

TROUBLESHOOTING :
The following i understand…
`print("HELLO")` this is text string that results in
HELLO
Next… I understand that i can implement math functions
`print(5x4)` this is a variable that results in
20

Now back to the text string, I understand i can repeat the text string as follows
`print("HELLO"*5)` and this will result in
HELLOHELLOHELLOHELLOHELLO
and if i wish to put them individually 1 line per hello i can use
`print("HELLO"*5n)`
HELLO
HELLO
HELLO
HELLO
HELLO

THIS HOWEVER DOESN’T NOT WORK
`print(5x4 * 5)` this results in
100
Because 5x4x5 =100 obviously

I would like it to output as follows
20 20 20 20 20
so
print(calulation then duplicate that answer by the amount of times i specify)

and i do realize i can do this

``````for i in range(5):
print(20)

``````

But i’m specifically looking to use the *5 instruction.

THE QUESTION :
Is it possible to use the format
`print(5x4)`
with the *5 (Multiplier)
in a one line statement to produce my desired outcome

I have tried
`print(5x4*5)`
`print(5x4)*5`
`print[(5x4)*5]`

and none of these seem to work, I’ve been racking my brain with this for approx 2 hours now.
I Understand that “print()” is used to print a TEXT STRING, but then.. it isn’t always because `print(5x4)` is not a text string but an int, so i assumed it would be possible to just pop on *5 at the end and it should work.

Any ideas ?

I realize this is basics, i have searched the forum for the answer already, everything relates to either basic print(“”) Text strings or for loops (which i already understand), but i cannot find an answer to this specific issue (i’m suspecting it may not be able to be done, but if so, i don’t understand why )
