Sum Method (IEnumerable(Double))

# Enumerable.Sum Method (IEnumerable<Double>)

.NET Framework 4.5

Computes the sum of a sequence of Double values.

Namespace:   System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

## Syntax

```public static double Sum(
this IEnumerable<double> source
)
```

#### Parameters

source
Type:

A sequence of Double values to calculate the sum of.

#### Return Value

Type: System.Double

The sum of the values in the sequence.

## Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

## Remarks

This method returns zero if source contains no elements.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Sum() clause translates to an invocation of Sum.

## Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use Sum(IEnumerable<Single>) to sum the values of a sequence.

Note

This code example uses an overload of this overloaded method that is different from the specific overload that this topic describes. To extend the example to this topic, substitute the elements of the source sequence with elements of the appropriate numerical type.

```List<float> numbers = new List<float> { 43.68F, 1.25F, 583.7F, 6.5F };

float sum = numbers.Sum();

Console.WriteLine("The sum of the numbers is {0}.", sum);

/*
This code produces the following output:

The sum of the numbers is 635.13.
*/

```
