Hi so the question I completed involves while loops and although I finished it and got the expected outcome, I added a random line of code for “fun” to see what it would do, you could call it guessing and checking.
x = int(input()) increase = 0 while x != 0: increase += x **x = int(input())** print(increase)
the line that I guessed has asterisks beside it, can someone please let me know what this simple line does.
If it helps: My question is to input as many numbers as I please, but when I input the value 0, my code should return the sum of the number I inputted before the zero
x = int(input()) #takes user input string and try to convert to integer data type increase = 0 # set value to variable increase while x != 0: # condition increase += x # it add/sum the value of the variable x to the value of the variable increase x = int(input()) #takes user input string and try to convert to integer data type inside the while loop print(increase) # print the value
