###### Question details

Python:

Could you help me understand the math behind this range function? I don’t understand how they arrive at these answers.

Given the output of 10,what output is produced by line 2? (Answer: 12)

Given the output of 11, what output is produced by line 3? (Answer: 8)

Code:

the_max=int(input("Enter the upper limit: "))

the_sum = 0

extra = 0

for number in range(1, the_max):

if number%2 and not number%3:

the_sum=the_sum+number

else:

extra=extra+1

print(the_sum) **#Line 2**

print(extra) **#Line3**
