For TRS-80 BASIC, I think.  For Commodore BASIC, it's


(you can also type PRINT and a quote and hit SHIFT-CLR HOME and
another quote, which works well when you want to print a string that
starts by clearing the screen and going to the top left corner, then
has other movement and/or text)

There are a number of Commodore BASIC books out there, and for
beginner stuff, the one that comes with the machine (if you get one in
the box) will get you started.
