• Last Updated : 26 Aug, 2021

Given a dictionary in Python, write a Python program to find the sum of all Items in the dictionary.
Examples:

```Input : {'a': 100, 'b':200, 'c':300}
Output : 600

Input : {'x': 25, 'y':18, 'z':45}
Output : 88```

• Approach #1 : Using Inbuilt sum() Function
Use the sum function to find the sum of dictionary values.

## Python3

 `# Python3 Program to find sum of``# all items in a Dictionary` `# Function to print sum``def` `returnSum(myDict):``    ` `    ``list` `=` `[]``    ``for` `i ``in` `myDict:``        ``list``.append(myDict[i])``    ``final ``=` `sum``(``list``)``    ` `    ``return` `final` `# Driver Function``dict` `=` `{``'a'``: ``100``, ``'b'``:``200``, ``'c'``:``300``}``print``(``"Sum :"``, returnSum(``dict``))`
• Output:
`Sum : 600`
•
• Approach #2 : Using For loop to iterate through values using values() function
Iterate through each value of the dictionary using values() function and keep adding it to the sum.
