I want to create a program that I type in a word.
for example...
chaos
each letter equals a number....
A=1
B=20
and so on.
So Chaos would be
C=13 H=4 A=1 O=7 S=5
I want to then have those numbers
13+4+1+7+5 added together to be 30.
How can I do that?
Also, just curious, but, how could I then have the 3 and 0 added
together to be 3?
Please help me out.
Thank you..... 10 1118
I want to create a program that I type in a word.
You can see that Python has a command to input strings from the
command line.
chaos
each letter equals a number....
A=1
B=20
and so on.

C=13 H=4 A=1 O=7 S=5
I want to then have those numbers
13+4+1+7+5 added together to be 30.

Python has a dictionary data structure called dict(), or {}, that you
can use to map your letters to those numbers. With it you can created
the letternumber association.
Then you can scan the characters of the input string one after the
other, and sum their values into a single total value. Try writing
that code, and then show it to us, we can give more suggestions if you
need them...

Will you put our names on your homework when you hand it in?

If the values are arbitrary:
letters_values = {'A':1, 'B':20, 'C':13, 'H':4, 'O':7, 'S':5, #etc...}
print letters_values['A']

you have the function "sumToOneDigit" that adds the digits of a number
till you get one digit (isn't that what you where curious about?)
And answering the main question : sum(ord(ch) for ch in 'chaos'.upper())
which is inside the "sumToOneDigit" funtion in my answer.
Sorry if that is not enough for you, but the answer is probably worth
what you paid for it.

def sumToOneDigit(num):
return num % 9 or 9
Valid when num>=1, which is guaranteed by the OP context.

Beautiful. Much better than mine.

I had provided a solution that conformed to the OP's 2 questions. Your
nonconform addition simply proved that you hadn't bothered to read.
Or else you meant to read the OP's mind beyond what he specified; but then you
should adress him, not me.

No, you did not adress the original questions.
My "hth what ?" was an invitation to
rectify. Sorry it wasn't enough for you, but the verbosity was probably worth
what you paid for it.
