# Python: Compute the sum of first n given prime numbers

## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-52 with Solution

Write a Python program to compute the sum of the first n prime numbers.

**Input:**

n ( n ≤ 10000). Input 0 to exit the program.

Input a number (n≤10000) to compute the sum:(0 to exit)

25

Sum of first 25 prime numbers:

1060

**Pictorial Presentation:**

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
MAX = 105000
print("Input a number (n≤10000) to compute the sum:(0 to exit)")
is_prime = [True for _ in range(MAX)]
is_prime[0] = is_prime[1] = False
for i in range(2, int(MAX ** (1 / 2)) + 1):
if is_prime[i]:
for j in range(i ** 2, MAX, i):
is_prime[j] = False
primes = [i for i in range(MAX) if is_prime[i]]
while True:
n = int(input())
if not n:
break
print("Sum of first",n,"prime numbers:")
print(sum(primes[:n]))
```

Sample Output:

Input a number (n≤10000) to compute the sum:(0 to exit) 25 Sum of first 25 prime numbers: 1060
