How is an issue different than a pull request?

I am going through the Intro to GitHub course. I’m trying to determine my workflow of when I would use an issue vs. a pull request. Thanks. 

Knowing when to use an issue versus a pull request is a great question. Generally, issues are suggested improvements, tasks or questions related to the repository. Pull requests are proposed changes to a repository submitted by a user and accepted or rejected by a repository’s collaborators.

For more information, see GitHub’s glossary for issues and pull requests.
