# Sum Digits

Given a positive integer as an input, write a function `sumDigits` that calculates the sum of all the digits of this number.

There is one constraint: you cannot convert the input number to another data type.

## Breakdown

1. If we could convert the input integer to a string or another data structure that was iteratable, it would be easy to walk through each digit and add them together. Now you need to be a little more creative.

2. The input is an integer which has a fixed upper limit. For example, the largest unsigned 64-bit integer is `2^64 - 1 = 18,446,744,073,709,551,615`. This is 20 total digits, so your Big O will actually be constant time O(1) because it can't grow arbitrarily large.

3. You can solve this iteratively or recursively. In either case, you will likely need to modulo `%` and divide by 10.
