# digit_sum

#1

THE CODE WORKS, BUT I HAVE THIS ERROR MESSAGE

#2

instead of printing the sum (soma) return it !!
`return soma`

#3

Can you solve it on the first way they ehplained,please?
I don't know how to divide a string

#4

By the time you reach that excercise you should be able or at least have an idea on how to divide strings.

#6

sorry fot late reply , you can use for loop , to loop for each character in string

``````str_name="this a string"
for n in str_name:
print n``````

the output will be
t
h
i

a

s
t
r
i
n
g

#7

Thank you .I was obviously tired

#8

Please compare your code to mine below which I tested to be working fine

```def digit_sum_2(n):

#initialize digitsum to zero. We will use this to store the digit sum total
digitsum = 0

#to get lenght of number we need to convert it to the str using str() function
for i in range(len(str(n))):

#Use modulo to get the rightmost digit of a number
rightmost = n % 10
#print "rightmost digit is ", rightmost
#print "Original n is ",n

#Add the number to the total
digitsum += rightmost

#Using floor divide to remove the rightmost digit
n = n // 10
#print "After removal n is ",n

return digitsum

num = 1234
print digit_sum_2(num)```

#9

just like mine
def digit_sum(n):
digitsum = 0
for s in range(len(str(n))):
rightmost = n % 10
digitsum += rightmost
n = n // 10
return digitsum

#10

``````def digit_sum(n):
count=0
for num in str(n):
count=count+int(num)
return count    :wink:``````

Try this :

I understand that codecademy wants what it wants and generally there is one response that it is looking for in particular but I would still like to know why this doesn't work. I have tried with and without the input being given. This works in console and in the lil window but I still get error returned wrong value

x = []
n = int(raw_input("what number: "))
def digit_sum(n):
while n > 0:
y = n % 10
x.append(y)
n /= 10
#print y
#print x
#print n
print sum(x)
return sum(x)
digit_sum(n)

#13

Ok so I moved the x = [] inside the function above the while loop and now I pass. I should really take the instructions far more literal. They did ask for a function as in single function not a function and a list.
