In this article, the task is to write a Python program to repeat M characters of string N times.

Method 1:

  1. Define a function that will take a word, m, n values as arguments.
  2. If M is greater than the length of the word. Set m value equal to the length of the word
  3. Now store the characters needed to be repeated into a string named repeat_string using slicing.
  4. Initialize an empty string named as a result
  5. Concatenate the repeat_string to result for n times.
  6. Now print the string.

Below is the implementation:

Python3




def repeat(word, m, n):
    
    # if number of characters greater than length of word.
    # set number of characters = length of word
    if(m > len(word)):
        m = len(word)
          
    repeat_word = word[:m]
    result = ""
      
    for i in range(n):
        result = result+repeat_word
    print(result)
  
# driver code
repeat("geeks", 2, 3)

Output:

gegege

Method 2:

  1. Define a function which will take a word, m, n values as arguments.
  2. if M is greater than length of word. set m value equal to length of word
  3. Now store the characters needed to be repeated into a string named repeat_string using slicing.
  4. Multiply the repeat_string with n.
  5. Now print the string.

Python3




def repeat(word, m, n):
    
    # if number of characters greater than length of word.
    # set number of characters = length of word
    if(m > len(word)):
        m = len(word)
          
    repeat_word = word[:m]
    print(repeat_word*n)
  
# driver code
repeat("geeks", 2, 3)

Output:

gegege
