• simple math program

    Ok, I'm trying to write a math program for fun... asks what operation you wanna

















































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































    run.. and then how many numbers. I got it to work for adding.. but subtracting

















































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































    no so much. Heres what I have for that

    def minus():
    num =input ("How many numbers you want to subtract? ")
    num = int(num)
    result = []
    for i in range(num):
    number=int(input(f'Please enter the (i+1) value :'))
    result.append(int((number)))
    def sub(number):
    total=0
    for i in number:
    total - = i
    return total
    print ("your total is:, (sub(result)))

    I ran this and it seems to add the numbers as a negative interger. Thoughts?

    def sub(number):
    total=0
    for i in number:
    total - = i
    return total

    total -= i is the same as total = total - i

    You start off by setting total to 0, and hence get negative integers since
    you start subtracting from 0.

    ok ok, this makes some sense... now the question is should I even have a line setting the total. I'll try and play around with this a bit.. but at least I have a direction. Thanks!

    You should probably initialize the total with the first number in the list instead of 0.
