PHP string + value to RoR

hello I'm new to RoR and i have concern regarding on how to output a
string with a value that parse on it.

Example in php:
$value = 1;
$string = 'the value is '.$value.'.';

and it gives you the output which is: "the value is 1." so how we are
going to do it in RoR. Any help would be appreciated. I know its very
simple to the one who knows it. Forgive me im only a newbie. Thank you!

myvalue = 1
mystring = 'the value is ' + myvalue.to_s + '.'

<% value = 1 %>
The value is <%= value %>

or
<% value = 1 %>
The value is <%= h(value) %>

In case you don't trust the "value" of value. The h (http_escape) method
will help protect you against injection attacks.

Oops! Previous post was a bad example. Assume value was taken from user
input, which in that case you should escape it to make it safe.
