Sum digits from a given output

Hello colleagues,

I am working on an APP in which user has to insert a word, then the CALCULATE button provides a number for each of the letter contained in the written word(it gets it from an already created dictionary)

Then, using the given output, for example, user introduces: AA , then it gives 1 1 , and what I need is to have those 1 1 summed. I tried the below procedure found in youtube (see screenshots) but it actually gives me 0 or random numbers without summing the previously given numbers.

Someone any ideas where I am doing it wrong or if has any other ideas ?

Thank you guys.
