In Terraform, you can use variables within other variables by utilizing the variable interpolation syntax. This allows you to create more dynamic configurations by referencing the values of other variables.
Here's an example of how you can use Terraform variables within other variables:

variable "region" {
  type    = string
  default = "us-west-2"

variable "environment" {
  type    = string
  default = "dev"

variable "bucket_name" {
  type        = string
  description = "The name of the bucket"
  default     = "${var.environment}-data-${var.region}"

resource "aws_s3_bucket" "example_bucket" {
  bucket = var.bucket_name
  # ...

In this example, there are three variables: region, environment, and bucket_name. The bucket_name variable is defined using variable interpolation, which references the values of the region and environment variables. The ${var.environment} and ${var.region} syntax allows you to access the values of other variables.

When you apply this configuration, Terraform will evaluate the variable expressions and populate the bucket_name variable with the concatenated string of dev-data-us-west-2. The aws_s3_bucket resource will then use this interpolated value when creating the S3 bucket.

Note that variable interpolation can be used not only within variables but also within resource definitions, data blocks, and other parts of your Terraform configuration.
