You can use the counter variable (which is increasing by one every time) to access each variable in the array. To access the first variable, you'd do numbers[0]. For the second value, you'd do numbers[1]. Since counter is going from 0 to the number of values in count, you can simply replace those bracketed numbers with number

sum = sum + numbers[counter]

Your sum statement should look like this: print(sum[numbers])
