# Python Exercises: Sum of missing numbers of a list of integers

## Python List: Exercise - 278 with Solution

Write a Python program to sum the missing numbers in a given list of integers.

**Sample Data:**

([0, 3, 4, 7, 9]) -> 22

([44, 45, 48]) -> 93

([-7, -5, -4, 0]) -> -12

**Sample Solution-1:**

**Python Code:**

```
def test(nums):
max_num = max(nums)
min_num = min(nums)
return (max_num+min_num)*(max_num-min_num+1)//2 - sum(nums)
nums = [0, 3, 4, 7, 9]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [44, 45, 48]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [-7, -5, -4, 0]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers:")
print(test(nums))
```

Sample Output:

Original list: [0, 3, 4, 7, 9] Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers: 22 Original list: [44, 45, 48] Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers: 93 Original list: [-7, -5, -4, 0] Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers: -12

**Sample Solution-2:**

**Python Code:**

```
def test(nums):
max_num = max(nums)
min_num = min(nums)
return sum(range(min_num, max_num+1))-sum(nums)
nums = [0, 3, 4, 7, 9]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [44, 45, 48]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [-7, -5, -4, 0]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers:")
print(test(nums))
```

Sample Output:

Original list: [0, 3, 4, 7, 9] Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers: 22 Original list: [44, 45, 48] Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers: 93 Original list: [-7, -5, -4, 0] Sum of missing numbers of the said list of integers: -12

## Python: Tips of the Day

**Generates a list, containing the Fibonacci sequence, up until the nth term:**

Example:

def fibonacci(n): if n <= 0: return [0] sequence = [0, 1] while len(sequence) <= n: next_value = sequence[len(sequence) - 1] + sequence[len(sequence) - 2] sequence.append(next_value) return sequence print(fibonacci(7))

Output:

[0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13]
