# Python program to find the sum of all items in a dictionary

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Problem statement − We are given a dictionary, and we need to print the 3 highest value in a dictionary.

Three approaches to the problem statement are given below:

## Approach 1 − Calculating sum from the dictionary iterable

### Example

Live Demo

# sum function
def Sum(myDict):
sum_ = 0
for i in myDict:
sum_ = sum_ + myDict[i]
return sum_
# Driver Function
dict = {'T': 1, 'U':2, 'T':3, 'O':4, 'R':5}
print("Sum of dictionary values :", Sum(dict))

### Output

Sum of dictionary values : 14

## Example

Live Demo

# sum function
def Sum(dict):
sum_ = 0
for i in dict.values():
sum_ = sum_ + i
return sum_
# Driver Function
dict = {'T': 1, 'U':2, 'T':3, 'O':4, 'R':5}
print("Sum of dictionary values :", Sum(dict))

### Output

Sum of dictionary values : 14

## Approach 3 − Calculating the sum from the dictionary.values() iterable

### Example

Live Demo

# sum function
def Sum(dict):
sum_ = 0
for i in dict.keys():
sum_ = sum_ + dict[i]
return sum_
# Driver Function
dict = {'T': 1, 'U':2, 'T':3, 'O':4, 'R':5}
print("Sum of dictionary values :", Sum(dict))

### Output

Sum of dictionary values : 14

## Conclusion

In this article, we have learned how we can find the highest 3 values in a dictionary
