Performing mathematical operations on dictionary values allows you to manipulate numerical data stored in the dictionary. In this blog post, we will explore different methods to perform mathematical operations on dictionary values in Python.

## Method 1: Using a loop

# Method 1: Using a loop my_dict = {"a": 10, "b": 5, "c": 20, "d": 15} result = 0 for value in my_dict.values(): result += value print("Sum of Values:", result) # Other mathematical operations such as finding the average, maximum, or minimum can also be performed using a loop.

**Output:**

Sum of Values: 50

## Method 2: Using the built-in sum() function

# Method 2: Using the built-in sum() function my_dict = {"a": 10, "b": 5, "c": 20, "d": 15} result = sum(my_dict.values()) print("Sum of Values:", result) # Other mathematical operations such as finding the average, maximum, or minimum can also be performed using the appropriate functions.

**Output:**

Sum of Values: 50
