To find the sum of all the elements in a list.
- Read the input number asking for the length of the list using
- Initialize an empty list
lst = .
- Read each number using a
- In the for loop append each number to the list.
- Now we use a predefined function
sum()to find the sum of all the elements in a list.
- Print the result.
lst =  num = int(input('How many numbers: ')) for n in range(num): numbers = int(input('Enter number ')) lst.append(numbers) print("Sum of elements in given list is :", sum(lst))
That’s how we can calculate the sum of elements in a list.
