Python : Program to Find/Calculate Sum of n Numbers

The Objective of this post: In this post, you will see various Python examples that cover the following:

  • Calculate/Find the sum of n natural numbers using loop and range function.
  • Find/Calculate Sum of n natural numbers in python using while loop
  • Python program to find/calculate the sum of numbers in a given list
  • The mathematical formula to find/calculate the sum of n numbers with python program
  • Python Program to Find/Calculate sum of n odd natural numbers.
  • Python Program to Find/Calculate sum of n even natural numbers.

Now let’s see each one by one:

1: Find/Calculate the sum of n natural numbers using loop and range function

  • First of all, you can use a python input() function in your python program that takes a user to enter the number (n) to calculate the sum.
  • Next, declare a variable that name sum, it will contain sum of n natural numbers sum.
  • Next, run loop till the entered number using the for loop and range() function.
  • Inside a loop, calculate the sum of n numbers using a sum = sum + current number formula.
  • After the loop ends, print the sum variable that contains the sum of n numbers

Python program to find the sum of n numbers using for loop:

n = input("Enter Number to calculate sum")
n = int (n)
sum = 0
for num in range(0, n+1, 1):
    sum = sum+num
print("SUM of first ", n, "numbers is: ", sum )

Output:

Enter Number to calculate sum 5 
Sum of first 5 number is: 15

2: Find/Calculate Sum of n natural numbers in python using while loop

Also, use the while loop in python to calculate the sum of n numbers.

  • First of all, you can use a python input() function in your python program that takes a user to enter the number (n) to calculate the sum.
  • Next, declare a variable that name sum, it will contain the sum of n natural numbers sum.
  • Run while loop until n is greater than zero
  • Add the current value of n to sum variable. And, decrement n number by 1 in while loop body
  • After the loop finishes, the print sum name variable.

Python program to find the sum of n numbers using While loop:

n = input("Enter Number to calculate sum")
n = int (n)
total_numbers = n
sum=0
while (n >= 0):
    sum += n
    n-=1
print ("sum using while loop ", sum)

Output:

Enter Number to calculate sum 5 
Sum using while loop  15 

3: Python program to Find/Calculate the sum of numbers in a given list

  • Declare a variable that name sum, it will contain the sum of n natural numbers sum.
  • Next, define list and assign a value to a python list.
  • Run for a loop and Add the current value of n to sum variable.
  • After the loop finishes, the print sum name variable.
sum = 0
list = [11,4,5,7,99,10,12]
for num in list:
    sum = sum +num
print ("sum of list element is : ", sum)

Output:

sum of list element is :  148 

4: The mathematical formula to Find/Calculate the sum of n numbers with python program

In the above programs, you have learned how to calculate the sum of n numbers using for loop, while loop and range function.

Now, you will learn how to calculate/find sum of n numbers in python without for loop, while loop in python. Calculate the sum directly using a mathematical formula in python program.

The sum of the n natural number mathematical formula is = n * (n+1) / 2.

In the below python program, you will learn how to use this mathematical formula is = n * (n+1) / 2 to find/calculate sum of n numbers in python programs.

Follow the steps:

  • Take a input from user in your python program using input() function.
  • Convert a user inputted number to an integer using int() function.
  • Calculates sum of number by using this formula n * (n+1) / 2 in your python program.
  • After that, the print name sum variable.
n = input("Enter a number to calculate sum")

n = int (n)
sum = n * (n+1) / 2
print("Sum of fthe irst ", n, "natural numbers using formula is: ", sum )

Output:

Enter a number to calculate sum 5 
Sum of fthe irst  5 natural numbers using formula is:  15.0 

5: Python Program to Find/Calculate sum of n odd natural numbers

  • Take input from user using python input() function in your python program.
  • Next, declare a variable that name sum, it will contain the sum of n odd numbers.
  • Next, run loop till the entered number using the for loop and range() function.
  • Inside a loop, calculate the sum of n odd numbers using a sum = sum + current number formula with (not (num % 2) == 0).
  • After the loop ends, print the sum variable that contains the sum of n odd numbers.

Python program to find sum of n odd numbers:

n = input("Enter Number to calculate sum")
n = int (n)
sum = 0
for num in range(0, n+1, 1):
    
    if(not (num % 2) == 0):
      sum += num;
      
print("SUM of odd numbers is: ", sum )

Output:

Enter Number to calculate sum 5 
SUM of odd numbers is:  9 

6: Python Program to Find/Calculate sum of n even natural numbers

  • Take input from the user using python input() function in your python program.
  • Next, declare a variable that name sum, it will contain the sum of n even numbers.
  • Next, run loop till the entered number using the for loop and range() function.
  • Inside a loop, calculate the sum of n even numbers using a sum = sum + current number formula with if test condition ((num % 2) == 0).
  • After the loop ends, print the sum variable that contains the sum of n even numbers.

Python program to find sum of n even numbers:

n = input("Enter Number to calculate sum")
n = int (n)
sum = 0
for num in range(0, n+1, 1):
    
    if((num % 2) == 0):
      sum += num;
      
print("SUM of even numbers is: ", sum )

Output:

Enter Number to calculate sum 5 
SUM of even numbers is:  9
