First and foremost, you should always read in numbers using a string and then convert it using the appropriate function, or at least test the input stream.

For your program

int start = 0, stop, sum = 0, input,

// prompt for user's total numbers (stop variable)
while(start < stop) {
   // ask for each number to sum
   // validate the number
      // if valid sum += input; stop++;
      // if bad, clear the input stream, and alert the user

// output the sum
