Write a function that accepts a sentence and capitalize the first letter of each words in the string. You must use split() method to split the sentence into its words

s = caps first letter
Outcome: Caps First Letter

I'm thinking is there any other way to concat the words in print()?

Thank you.

What I have tried:

s = "caps first letter"
str = ""
for word in s.split():
    str = str + " " + word.capitalize()

Yes, there is.

If you have a list, let's call it words, then you can use print to print those words separated by spaces:
The * operator in this context makes sure that each item in the list gets passed as a different argument to print. So, if words is ['Caps', 'First', 'Letter'], then the code expands to:
print('Caps', 'First', 'Letter')
And because print with multiple arguments prints out each argument separated by spaces, this does exactly what you wanted.

If you would not use the * operator, then the code would expand to this:
print(['Caps', 'First', 'Letter'])
which prints:
['Caps', 'First', 'Letter']
and that's clearly not what you want.
