please help i dont understand i revised the past things i have taken but need help on this exercise
Please show us what you have so far. What part of the instructions do you now understand?
Given a number with two or more digits, what is the sum of the digits?
number = 23456 sum_of_digits = 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 5 9 14 20
Of course, the order in which we add the digits is not important. All that matters is that we add all of them. Can you think of an algorithm that can break a number into digits and sum them up?
it is not the instructions i cant some how solve it and what is the floor divide and why do i make it a str when its an integer why cant i just write:
for numbers in n:
look i revised the past things and i have been very well in the past exercises what is the problem with this
The sum function works on a list of numbers. We convert
n to a string so we can convert it to a list (a number cannot be split or made into a list since Number class has no method to perform that task).
The main idea behind these exercises is to attempt to solve these without using built-in tools. That means some form of algorithm. We're not looking for the best program, but a better understanding of how to create a process that solves the problem.
There is another possibility that does not involve a list, but that simply iterates over the string. To add each digit we need to convert it back to an integer, else we end up concatenating a new string that is identical to the original.
// symbolizes floor division, or integer division. The result is always rounded down to the nearest integer.
20 // 17 == 1 20 % 17 == 3 1 * 17 + 3 == 20
When we floor divide a number by 10, the quotient will be one less digit than the dividend.
total = 0 1. 12345 % 10 == 5 => digit 5 extracted from sequence; add to total 2. 12345 // 10 == 1234 => repeat step 1
look i know this sounds like i dont understand and these things but i have two or three days without programming because of important things whatever this is my code and it gives the same error you said that the str can turn into a list so i did that tell me what is the problem here
def digit_sum(n): n == str(n) kalo = 0 for numbers in n : sum(numbers) kalo += sum(numbers) return kalo
and why some people type that
remainder = n % 10
or remainder = n / 10 to get the sum its sum not division i was thinking why
wait a second i think i got it i didnt read what you wrote all
