How to append integer variable to another integer variable with Power Automate?

If I initialize an integer variable before my custom actions are set, and set its default value to 0, 

then later in my loop set a condition to check if a Microsoft form integer variable is not null, 

Then how can I assign this Microsoft form integer variable to my original initialized variable?

 

What's the most primitive way of handling this?

you can use compose data operation and use the add expression add(yourVariable,valueinsideyourloop)

then update your variable to the output of the compose data operation

That is so awesome!  Just one tiny thing if you can update your answer, how can I confirm that the second variable (The one inside my loop) should be "treated" as an integer.  Meaning if the variable came back empty, I want it to be treated as 0 integer.  Is this an easy tweak to apply?

 

Based on your excellent help, this is working for me so far...

 

 

 

 

add(variables('Cook Time (Minutes)'),outputs('Get_response_details')?['body/r5ac288b2b44845ccbaa6489d9b2da63e'])

 

 

 

 

 ...I just want to guarantee that second variable gets treated as an int (if its blank turn it to 0).

can you try the below:

add(variables('Cook Time (Minutes)'),if(equals(outputs('Get_response_details')?['body/r5ac288b2b44845ccbaa6489d9b2da63e'],null),0,outputs('Get_response_details')?['body/r5ac288b2b44845ccbaa6489d9b2da63e']))

That helped me out!  All I had to do was change the null to ''
