*November 20, 2023*To add all numbers in a list, you can use the built-in function sum() in Python. Here is an example on how it works:

```
# Initialize list of numbers
numbers = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
# Use the sum() function to add all numbers together
total_sum = sum(numbers)
print(total_sum) # Outputs: 15
```

In this code example, we first defined a list of integers. Then, we used the built-in `sum()`

function to calculate the total sum of these numbers. The result is printed out on the console. This simple one-liner solution can be very useful when you need to add up all the elements in a list.

This concept could be further applied when you want to find the average, min or max value from a list of values by using other built-in Python functions like `min()`

, `max()`

and `len()`

.
