I'm trying to run a loop to turn the characters of the number into a list of string characters, and then turn those characters into integers and sum them. But I'm getting an error message that "digit_sum(434) returns 1302 instead of 11" My code is obviously wrong, but I don't see where. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks! n = int(input("type in your number:")) def digit_sum(n): string = str(n) list =  for char in string: list.append(n) d = 0 for a in list: number = int(a) d = d + number return d print d
n (which is the whole number) to list, shouldn't this be something else?
hi @hwh13, i feel like you do not need your first line of code. The way I did it was by using an if/while/else statement that looks like this:
if n >= 0: sum = 0
try adding the while (hint: use a %)and the else. Hope this helps!
yes, that was it; thanks! I'd been stuck for days on that one.
