4.5. For: Sum of cubes

For the given integer N calculate the following sum: 1³ + 2³ + ... + N³

OK, so the first thing you need to do is change

for e in range(n) to for e in range(1, n+1)

This way, you're starting from 1 and ending at n.

Also, the for loop where you are going through lst could be simplified to a sum(statement),

eg. total = sum(lst)

Hope this helped you,

Btw, I forked your real and applied the above changes. here is my link > https://repl.it/@Neil_Chaudhury/45-For-Sum-of-cubes

Cool! Just saying, I would make line one like this:`n = int(input('N: '))`

That way they know to type.

Good work! This is also a nice opportunity to apply a recursive function. The below code does the same task but recursively, by calling itself!

To make a recursive function you need two parts:

1. The base case: how the program exits. The lines

are the base case.

is the recursive case.
