Hi,

in college we got an homework. The task is to write a program that sum the first consecutive even numbers and that the sum can not exceed 200.

The result would be:

2 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 10 + 12 + 14 + 16 + 18 + 20 + 22 + 24 + 26

Python should “answer” that:

The count of even numbers is: 13

The total is: 182

I am sure that this is an easy task for most of you, but I am a beginner so please be patient .

I am trying for a couple of days now, but I am not able to write the right code.

So far I was able to do this:

from random import *

from math import *

even = 1

value = 0

while even <= 200:

even = (even + 2)

value = value +1

```
print ("sum of the value: ", even , "number of the value: ", value )
if even == 200:
break;
```

total = int(input("How many consecutive numbers should I add up not to exceed 200: "))

##
if total == 5:

print("You calculated correctly: ", value - 1, “consecutive numbers is the correct answer”)

Thank you for your help
