# Answer to Question #35568 in Python for Caroline Kearns

Question #35568

Assume there is a variable , h already associated with a positive integer value. Write the code necessary to compute the sum of the first h perfect squares, starting with 1 . (A perfect square is an integer like 9 , 16 , 25 , 36 that is equal to the square of another integer (in this case 3*3 , 4*4 , 5*5 , 6*6 respectively).) Associate the sum you compute with the variable q . For example, if h is 4 , you would assign 30 to q because the first 4 perfect squares (starting with 1 ) are: 1 , 4 , 9 , 16 and 30==1+4+9+16 .
