Need plain simple straight forward simple to understand formatting instructions

I have read all the posts that i could find about how to post my python code and none of them are clear or make any since at all. please can someone, anyone please tell me in PLAN ENGLISH how to post my python code so that it is formatted. I know that i don’t need to download software and using
ctrl + shift + c gives me a screen that i don’t understand, or even know what it is. Please don’t speak in computer science or programming lingo. All i need is plain simple straight forward simple to understand instructions.

Thank you for you time and instruction

Before I get started, have you tried these steps yet?

yes that does not work

i copy and paste it that is all that i know how to do and that does not format the code if i wrap it in single backticks (`) for a small amount of code, or triple backticks on an otherwise blank line before and after for a large amount of code.

You can also, copy/paste your code here, then select it all and click the </> button in the editor’s toolbar.

numbers = [3,5,7]
def total(numbers):
    result = 0
    for i in numbers:
        result = result + i
    return result
print total (numbers)

Finally someone that can answer a question in a clear and concise way!!!
Thank you
