a1 = 1; a2 = 2; a3 = 3;
Sum[ToExpression["a" <> ToString[n]], {n, 3}]
6
Simpler to just use the form a[1] vice a1
a[1] = 1; a[2] = 2; a[3] = 3;
Sum[a[n], {n, 3}]
6

=============
Hi,
do you know maybe is there a possibility to change a name of a
variable in a loop? I'm not exactly sure how to explain it, so maybe
instead of my words I paste a basic example that express my query:
a1 = 1; a2 = 2; a3 = 3;
func[g_] := g;
Summ = 0;
For[i = 1, i <= 3, i += 1,
Summa += func[ai]]
So something like this... I have tried to deal with this like with
strings and have put func[a<>"i"] but it didn't work (quite logic).
The general problem is much more complicated, this is only a part of
it, so please do not suggest me how can I sum up three numbers, this I
believe I know :) I would very appreciate any hints,
Best regards,
Kazik
