# C Program to find the sum of array elements

Get array size n and n elements of array, then compute sum of the elements.

Sample Input 1:

5 5 7 9 3 1

Sample Output 1:

25

#### Program or Solution

```					    ```

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(void)

{

int *a,n,i,sum=0;

printf("Enter size of array:");
scanf("%d",&n);

a=malloc(sizeof(int)*n);

printf("Enter %d Elements:",n);
for(i=0;i<n;i++)

{

scanf("%d",&a[i]);

}

for(i=0;i<n;i++)

{

sum=sum+a[i];

}

printf("The sum of Array is: %d",sum);
return 0;

}
```
```

#### Program Explanation

i is initialized to 0 and incremented by 1 at each iteration of both the for loops.

First for loop reads n input numbers from user and stores them in array a[] from location 0 to n-1

Second for loop adds all the n elements of array located from 0 to n-1

Finally prints the sum using printf statement.
