ALSO please explain since im trying to learn python

amount = input("How many numbers would you like to add?")

numbers = [] # list to store numbers
for i in range(int(amount)): # execute this code amount times, with i as the amount of times run.
  numbers.append(input(f"Enter number {i + 1}..."))

result = 0 # we will add to this
for number in numbers: # for each number in the list of numbers, add it to result
  result += float(number) # += means add and assign (eg. num = num + 1 is the same as num += 1)

print(f"Answer: " + str(result))

addnumvar = 0
numofinput = int(input("How many numbers do you want to input?")
for i in range(numofinput):
  addnum = int(input("Enter a number")
  addnumvar += addnum

What I did was create a variable to add the numbers
Then I made an input to see how many numbers the user wants to add
Then I made a for loop and the range is the number the user input for the step above
Then I made another integer input and added it to addnumvar

Hope this helps, and have an awesome day!!! :D

@Aivoybia It gives me a syntax error for some reason
