When I call Variable x to equal numbers from a text file, I am getting the file returned in multiple lists. with open('numbers.txt') as f: for item in f: n = item.split() print (n) I end up with numbers in the format. ['1'] ['2'] ['3'] I want to join these numbers into one list. Unless i'm mistaken, I am calling variable n as this group of lists. When I try to combine I end up with errors. Essentially, I want to eventually add these numbers, but I will get to that some other time. Am I in the correct direction? Should i be reading these numbees a different way?
