﻿ Python: Sum of all list elements except current element

# Python Exercises: Sum of all list elements except current element

## Python List: Exercise - 275 with Solution

Write a Python program to add all elements of a list of integers except the number at index. Return the updated string.

Example: ([1, 2, 3]) -> [1+2+3-1, 1+2+3-2, 1+2+3-3]
-> [5, 4, 3].

Sample Data:
([0, 9, 2, 4, 5, 6] -> [26, 17, 24, 22, 21, 20]
([-4, 0, 6, 1, 0, 2]) -> [9, 5, -1, 4, 5, 3]
([1, 2, 3]) -> [5, 4, 3]
([-4, 0, 5, 1, 0, 1]) -> [7, 3, -2, 2, 3, 2]

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````# Define a function named 'test' that takes a list 'nums' as input.
def test(nums):
# Use a list comprehension to calculate the sum of all elements in the 'nums' list,
# and then subtract each element 'x' from the total sum. This gives the sum of all elements except the current one.
return [sum(nums) - x for x in nums]

# Define the original list 'nums'.
nums = [0, 9, 2, 4, 5, 6]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
# Call the 'test' function to calculate the sum of elements except the current element for each element in the list.
print("Sum of said list elements except the current element:\n", test(nums))

# Define another list 'nums'.
nums = [-4, 0, 6, 1, 0, 2]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
# Call the 'test' function for the second list of numbers.
print("Sum of said list elements except the current element:\n", test(nums))

# Define another list 'nums'.
nums = [1, 2, 3]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
# Call the 'test' function for the third list of numbers.
print("Sum of said list elements except the current element:\n", test(nums))

# Define another list 'nums'.
nums = [-4, 0, 5, 1, 0, 1]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
# Call the 'test' function for the fourth list of numbers.
print("Sum of said list elements except the current element:\n", test(nums))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
[0, 9, 2, 4, 5, 6]
Sum of said list elements except current element:
[26, 17, 24, 22, 21, 20]

Original list:
[-4, 0, 6, 1, 0, 2]
Sum of said list elements except current element:
[9, 5, -1, 4, 5, 3]

Original list:
[1, 2, 3]
Sum of said list elements except current element:
[5, 4, 3]

Original list:
[-4, 0, 5, 1, 0, 1]
Sum of said list elements except current element:
[7, 3, -2, 2, 3, 2]
```
