# 8.4.5 Five Numbers CodeHS Answers

The most common answer:

``````list=[]
for i in range(5):
number=int(input(“Number:”))
list.append(number)
print(list)
final=sum(list)
print(final)``````

This script for collecting five numbers from the user, adding them to a list, and then printing both the list and the sum of its elements is almost correct.

To ensure full compatibility with Python syntax and avoid using “list” as a variable name (since it’s a built-in Python function), let’s adjust the quotation marks and choose a different variable name for the list:

``````numbers = []  # Use a descriptive name instead of overriding the built-in 'list'

for i in range(5):
number = int(input("Number: "))  # Properly formatted input prompt
numbers.append(number)  # Add the user's number to the list

print(numbers)  # Print the list of numbers

final = sum(numbers)  # Calculate the sum of the list elements
print(final)  # Print the sum
``````

This script:

• Initializes an empty list named `numbers`.
• Uses a for loop to prompt the user to input a number five times, converting each input to an integer and appending it to the `numbers` list.
• Prints the list of numbers collected from the user.
• Calculates the sum of the numbers in the list using the `sum` function and prints the result.
