# Python program to find the sum of all items in a dictionary

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 sum function to find the sum of dictionary values.

 `# Python3 Program to find sum of  ` `# all items in a Dictionary ` ` `  `# Function to print sum ` `def` `returnSum(myDict): ` `     `  `    ``sum` `=` `0` `    ``for` `i ``in` `myDict: ` `        ``sum` `=` `sum` `+` `myDict[i] ` `     `  `    ``return` `sum` ` `  `# 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.

 `# Python3 Program to find sum of  ` `# all items in a Dictionary ` ` `  `# Function to print sum ` `def` `returnSum(``dict``): ` `     `  `     ``sum` `=` `0` `     ``for` `i ``in` `dict``.values(): ` `           ``sum` `=` `sum` `+` `i ` `      `  `     ``return` `sum` ` `  `# Driver Function ` `dict` `=` `{``'a'``: ``100``, ``'b'``:``200``, ``'c'``:``300``} ` `print``(``"Sum :"``, returnSum(``dict``)) `

Output:

`Sum : 600`
• Approach #3 : Using For loop to iterate through items of Dictionary

Iterate through each item of the dictionary and simply keep adding the values to the sum variable.

 `# Python3 Program to find sum of  ` `# all items in a Dictionary ` ` `  `# Function to print sum ` `def` `returnSum(``dict``): ` `     `  `     ``sum` `=` `0` `     ``for` `i ``in` `myDict: ` `           ``sum` `=` `sum` `+` `dict``[i] ` `      `  `     ``return` `sum` ` `  `# Driver Function ` `dict` `=` `{``'a'``: ``100``, ``'b'``:``200``, ``'c'``:``300``} ` `print``(``"Sum :"``, returnSum(``dict``)) `

Output:

`Sum : 600`
