I want to be able to add the values from an array together. I have placed a random number in a random placement into an array and want to add all of them together but not clear how to?

int i;
for(i=0; i<5; ++i)
{
 
}

I CAN SEE THIS WAY  variable = letters[0]+letters[1]+letters[2]+letters[3]+letters[4];

I would like to learn how to do this using a for statement so I can learn to use them more

Thanks now that I see it it is obvious. But I have a question I noticed you made sum an int, but the values in the array are char please explain how this will still work.

Or would it be like this?

char Sum = " ";
int i;
for(i=0; i<5; ++i)
{
   Sum += letters[ i ];
}
