# Python Arithmetic

Proof that Python is no good for serious work: its arithmetic operators don’t handle expressions more than 8 operations long. Certainly the tens digit of this ought to be 0 or 5:

>>> 950 + \
... 850 + \
... 750 + \
... 650 + \
... 550 + \
... 450 + \
... 350 + \
... 250 + \
... 150 + \
... 050
4990


Isn’t it amazing that this sort of code persists?
