Python for in loop

Simple example code where for loop does not require an indexing variable to set beforehand. Let’s write the Program to find the sum of all numbers stored in a list.

# List of numbers
numbers = [1, 2, 3, 8, 4, 2, 5, 4]
sum = 0

# iterate over the list
for val in numbers:
    sum = sum + val

print("The sum is", sum)

for x in "Hello":

With the break statement, you can stop the loop before it has looped through all the items:

fruits = ["apple", "banana", "cherry"]
for x in fruits:
  if x == "banana":
