Average of Squares of Natural Numbers

Given a number n, find the average of square of natural Numbers till n

Examples :

Input : n = 2
Output :2.5
12 + 22 = 2.5

Input  : n = 3
Output : 4.666667
12 + 22 + 32 = 4.666667



Naive approach :
A naive approach will be to run a loop from 1 to n and and find the average of sum up all the squares.

Efficient Approach : Sum of squares of natural numbers (n + 1)(2n + 1) / 6. Therefore average is n(n + 1)(2n + 1) / 6 * n = (n + 1)(2n + 1) / 6.
