Do the math Practice
sum = 0 while True: x = input() #your code goes here if input == "stop": print ("stop") else: sum += int(input()) print (sum) break I think I missed the mark? Anyway we are required to calculate the sum of user input and break it, if the user inputs (“stop”). Will keep practicing, as before I was just getting Errors, then I managed to get it to just output “stop”. Now I managed to output “2” so I think I should hopefully manage. However just in case I’m not on the right track.

Oh, yes, you are right. My bad. Anyway, I get error sometimes, because I have indented block message. So the code is good, but place of a code in a line is wrong. But this code should work just fine: sum = 0 while True: x = input() if x == 'stop': break sum += int(x) print(sum)
ANSWER SPOILER: You are so close. Put a break after print(“stop”). You don’t need the break at the end of the code. Then remove indents from your final print. Otherwise, you’ll get a list. sum = 0 while True: x = input() #your code goes here if x == "stop": break sum +=int(x) print(sum)
@Luiza Haas, your code works good on 'Code PlayGround'. It works the same as 'else:' between break and sum += int(x). The problem is that it doesn't work on the problem "shell". Got this error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usercode/file0.py", line 7, in <module> sum += int(x) TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +=: 'builtin_function_or_method' and 'int' It's kinda crazy o_o PS: Your code did work! The error above was a tiny mistake on my behalf! Thanks alot!!! PSS:Oh and don't writte x == 'Stop' but 'stop'
So you're supposed to accept values and add them up until the user enters 'stop', right? If so, then you must break the loop when the user enters 'stop'. So I think the break should be in the if clause and not in the else clause. Correct me if I'm wrong
I have the same problem... If I do the code un 'code playground' eveything works fine but when I do the same code on the problem panel, I get that message. It's a little frustating :/
For anyone looking, this worked for me. moving the print sum into the loop was what did it. sum = 0 while True: x = input() if x == ("stop"): print (sum) break else: sum += int(x)
the correct code is the following: sum = 0 while True: x =input() if x == "stop": break else: sum += int(x) print(sum)
Trace back (most recent call last): File “/ usercode/ file0.py”, line 7 in <module> sum += int(x) ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ‘stop’ thanks for the assist though,... ill keep working on it
Arthur, shouldn't you just use "stop" instead 'stop' ?
It does the same work if it's quote or double-quote.
Uff great :):)
