Here's the question you clicked on:

for this bit of codesumDigits = 0 for c in str(1952): sumDigits += int(c) print sumDigits the += can someone explain what it means in laymans terms, i get that it means adding but why is the equal sign always there in that type of code
It's just a shorthand for: sumDigits = sumDigits + int( c ); It saves having to write sumDigits twice, but still assigns ( '=' ) the sum of sumDigits + int( c ) to sumDigits.
Thanks, that is exactly what I need to know. :)
