# How do i save the sum of numbers from a list to a new list?

I am writing a code that creates a list that stores multiple Course names. There is another list that stores student names and their scores. I am trying to generate a report that will show all the courses and the total of student scores from the list.

I tried creating a third list that will store the different course with student name and their score and then display only the course and total score of students offering the course.

``````def menu():

choice = input("""
1: Enter course
2: Enter score figure
3: Generate report

print("------------------------------------------------------------")

if choice == "1" :
entercoursedetails()
elif choice == "2":
enterstudentdetails()
elif choice == "3":
generatereport()
else:
print("You must only select either 1,2 or 3.")

def entercoursedetails():
print("Enter course name")
coursename=input()

if (coursename not in Currentcourse) :
Currentcourse.append(coursename)
informationList.append(coursename)# {record all course names}

index = Currentcourse.index(coursename)

return coursename

def enterstudentdetails():

name_array = list()
score_array = list()

print ("score Reporting")
print (" Current course:", Currentcourse)
def check_continue():

response = input('Continue? [y/n] ')

if response == 'n':
return False
elif response == 'y':
return True
else:
return check_continue()

while(True):

std_name = input('Name: ')
score_record = int(input('score: '))

name_array.append(std_name)
score_array.append(score_record)

if not check_continue():
break
else:
continue

for name, score in zip(name_array, score_array):
print(name, '\t', score)

def generatereport():
persum = [0 for i in range(100)]
for item in informationList :

persum[Currentcourse.index(item[1])] += float(item[2])

for i in range (len(Currentcourse)) :
print(Currentcourse[i], "    ", persum[i])
print("-----------------------------")

for item in informationList :
print(item[0], "   ", item[2])

print("-----------------------------")
print("Total Score:     ", sum(persum))
print("-----------------------------")

when Generate report is selected, its meant to show
