How can i stop this Infinite While Loop - Python


>From what I understand you want to give the user the possibility to try 10
times or enter -1 to end the script, right?
If so, you need to check if item is -1 or total tries are already 10 and in
such a case break the loop.
No need for an else branch.
Note, input returns an str object but you compare against an integer  ->
item != -1
This   total += int(item)   should be raised by one as you don't know what
item actually is, it might be a text
