Pardon my skepticism - I'm guessing you are taking the course and this 
is homework. We prefer not to do your homework for you. If it is not 
homework - we prefer not to write programs for you.

Unfortunately Benno gave you a solution.

If you want to learn Python read on:

In regard to the above code - did you try to run it? That is step one. 
Try to run it. See if you can figure out why it fails. Hint there are 2 
syntax errors.

At python.org there are links to several tutorials which will show you 
how to repeat operations.

To repeat things in Python we can use a loop. What Python statements are 
used for loops?
