Sum of list (with string types) in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this tutorial, we are going to write a program that adds all numbers from the list. List may contain numbers in string or integer format. See the example.

Input

random_list = [1, '10', 'tutorialspoint', '2020', 'tutorialspoint@2020', 2020]

Output

4051

Follow the below steps to write the program.

  • Initialize the list.
  • 3Initialize a variable total with 0.
  • Iterate over the list.
  • If the element is int, then add it to the total by checking two conditions.
    • The element will be int -> Check type.
    • The element will be a number in string format -> Check using isdigit() method.
  • Print the total

Example

 Live Demo

# initialzing the list
random_list = [1, '10', 'tutorialspoint', '2020', 'tutorialspoint@2020', 2020]
# initializing the variable total
total = 0
# iterating over the list
for element in random_list:
   # checking whether its a number or not
   if isinstance(element, int) or element.isdigit():
      # adding the element to the total
      total += int(element)
# printing the total
print(total)

Output

If you run the above code, then you will get the following result.

4051
