# Python Program to find Sum of N Natural Numbers

Write a Python Program to find Sum of N Natural Numbers using While Loop, For Loop, and Functions with an example.

## Python Program to find Sum of N Natural Numbers using For Loop

This program allows users to enter any integer value. Next, it calculates the sum of natural numbers from 1 to a user-specified value using For Loop.

```number = int(input("Please Enter any Number: "))
total = 0

for value in range(1, number + 1):
total = total + value

print("The Sum of Natural Numbers from 1 to {0} =  {1}".format(number, total))```
``````Please Enter any Number: 25
The Sum of Natural Numbers from 1 to 25 =  325``````

## Python Program to Calculate Sum of N Natural Numbers using While Loop

In this program, we just replaced the For Loop with While Loop.

```num = int(input("Please Enter any Num: "))

total = 0
value = 1

while (value <= num):
total = total + value
value = value + 1

print("The Sum from 1 to {0} =  {1}".format(num, total))```
``````Please Enter any Num: 12
The Sum from 1 to 12 =  78``````

## Sum of N Natural Numbers using Functions

In this program, we created a new function to find the sum of natural numbers. Inside this function, we used the If Else statement.

```def sum_of_n_natural_numbers(num):
if(num == 0):
return num
else:
return (num * (num + 1) / 2)

number = int(input("Please Enter any Number: "))

total_value = sum_of_n_natural_numbers(number)

print("Sum from 1 to {0} =  {1}".format(number, total_value))```
``````Please Enter any Number: 100
Sum from 1 to 100 =  5050.0``````

## Calculate Sum of N Natural Numbers using Functions

This sum of natural numbers program is the same as the above example, but we are using Recursion this time.

```def sum_of_n_natural_numbers(num):
if(num == 0):
return num
else:
return (num + sum_of_n_natural_numbers(num - 1))

number = int(input("Please Enter any Number: "))

total_value = sum_of_n_natural_numbers(number)

print("Sum of Natural Numbers from 1 to {0} =  {1}".format(number, total_value))```
