I brought a python book and i'm a beginner and I read and tried to do the questions and I still get it wrong.

How to create a program that reads an uspecified number of integers, that determines how many positive and negative values have been read, and computes the total and average of the input values(not counting zeroes). My program have to end with the input 0 and have to display the average as a floating-point number.

Use nested loops that display the following patterns in separate programs:

1
12
123
1234
12345
123456

123456
12345
1234
123
12
1

1
21
321
4321
54321
654321

Write a program that computes the following summation:

1/ 1+square root of 2 + 1/ 1+square root of 2 + square root of 3 + 1/ 1+square root of 3 + square root of 4...+ 1/ 1+square root of 624 + square root of 625

How to  a program to draw a chessboard using range?

Thanks

Pick one of the questions, write as much of the code as you can, and
then post the specific difficulties you're having. If we write the

Once you have some code that isn't working, we can help you to figure
out what it is that isn't working. But do your best to write the code
yourself first.

Maybe, but there's definitely something that happens close to birth.
If your parents give you the name Chris, you're more likely to become
a geek and a programmer.

There are people with rare talent who can program in a way that
most others can't, .e.g, Chris Sawyer. But, as Louis Moyse, a
great musician remarked: "Without hard work, talent means
nothing."

Sure, it definitely takes work. You still have to put in your ten
thousand hours. I don't know what the connection is, but there do seem
to be a LOT of geeky Chrises; in fact, in any mid-length thread here
on python-list, you could probably conclude with a "Thanks for the
tip, Chris, it works now!" without even bothering to read it.
