# Answer to Question #47437 in Python for Brian Franzel

Question #47437

Use the variables k and total to write a while loop that computes the sum of the squares of the first 50 counting numbers, and associates that value with total . Thus your code should associate 1*1 + 2*2 + 3*3 +... + 49*49 + 50*50 with total . Use no variables other than k and total .

Expert's answer

k = 1

sum = 0

while(k <= 50):

sum += k * k

k+= 1

print sum

sum = 0

while(k <= 50):

sum += k * k

k+= 1

print sum
