# Python program to read numbers find the total average

## Python program to read numbers repeatedly find the total, an average of numbers

Develop a program that repeatedly reads numbers until the user enters “done”. Once “done” is entered, print out the total, count, and average of the numbers. If the user enters anything other than a number, detect their mistake using try and except and print an error message and skip to the next number.

### Source Code to read numbers display the total and average

```sum = 0
cnt = 0
while True:
inp = input("Enter the number or done: ")
if (inp == 'done'):
break
try:
inp = int(inp)
cnt = cnt + 1
sum = sum + inp
except:
print ("Enter the numeric value")
continue

avg = sum / cnt

print ("Total is:", sum)
print ("Th eCount is:", cnt)
print ("Average is:", avg)```

### Output:

Case 1:

Enter the number or done: 10

Enter the number or done: 20

Enter the number or done: hit

Enter the numeric value

Enter the number or done: 30

Enter the number or done: done

Total is: 60

The count is: 3

Average is: 20.0

Case 2:

Enter the number or done: 5

Enter the number or done: 10

Enter the number or done: 15

Enter the number or done: Mahesh

Enter the numeric value

Enter the number or done: 20

Enter the number or done: done

Total is: 50

The count is: 4

Average is: 12.5
