def digit_sum(n):

total = 0

n = str(n)

for i in n:

total += int(i)

return total

digit_sum(434) <--- returns 4, should return 11

def digit_sum(n):

total = 0

n = str(n)

for i in n:

total += int(i)

return total

digit_sum(434) <--- returns 4, should return 11

def digit_sum(n):

total = 0

n = str(n)

for i in n:

total += int(i)

return total

digit_sum(434)`indent preformatted text by 4 spaces`

if you edit/update your question, leave a reply so i get a notification. Take the following steps to show indent, i think the backtick is the easiest method of the two:

select your code and press ctrl + k (or cmd + k if you use a mac)

if this instructions are unclear, you can also insert 3 backticks before and after your code, like so:

```
```
<p>visible</p>
```
```

the backtick is located above the tab key on your keyboard

i don't see anything when returned, so i added a print: (for the rest the code is the same)

```
def digit_sum(n):
total = 0
n = str(n)
for i in n:
total += int(i)
return total
print(digit_sum(434))
```

it returns 11, and this your code. Are you sure your return is indented correctly? if return is at the same line as total, it will return 4 since the loop is only executed once
