Trouble using the sum function..
This is my code:
x = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]
total = sum(x)
This is my error report:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 3, in <module>
TypeError: 'int' object is not callable
I want to simply take the sum of the items in my list named x by using the sum function. What am I doing wrong and a correct way to do this would be appreciated.

It's strange that it doesn't work for you. There's nothing wrong with your code. I don't think the sum() function is limited to any one version, but I suppose something could be off - so which version of Python are you using?
>>> x = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]
>>> total = sum(x)
>>> print total

Forgive and correct me if my vocabulary is incorrect.
I am using the compiler on a website called codecademy.com
Maybe the problem is on their end?

Actually, there are no problems now. I didn't change anything either. Weird. Thanks for your time.

No problem. Glad things worked out.
Good luck with Python
