Hi krashraj,
Use -n option in echo command
echo -n "$VAr"
echo -n "$lenght"
echo -n "$sum"

Since you are printing numbers you can have more control over precision and formatting if needed by using printf if your shell supports it:
printf "%f %d %d\n" $var $length $sum

This page has great info and examples for the korn shell, scroll down a little to the printf section.
