# Answer to Question #64732 in Python for Mukangwa Masamba

Question #64732

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

Solution

# Initialize k – the number of term

k = 1

# Initialize total – the sum of squares

total = 0

# Loop while k is less or equal to 50

while (k <= 50):

# Increase total by square of k

total = total + k * k

# Increase k by 1

k += 1

# Output total

print (total)

# Initialize k – the number of term

k = 1

# Initialize total – the sum of squares

total = 0

# Loop while k is less or equal to 50

while (k <= 50):

# Increase total by square of k

total = total + k * k

# Increase k by 1

k += 1

# Output total

print (total)
