Im struggling to finish this code:

sales_data = [[12, 17, 22], [2, 10, 3], [5, 12, 13]]
scoops_sold = 0

for location in sales_data:
  print(location)
  for element in location:
    element += scoops_sold
print(scoops_sold)

Im not sure how to make sure that each element gets added to the zero value variable. I dont know what Im doing wrong. Can someone show me and tell me what is going on here in this code?Preformatted text
