C# Program to Calculate the Sum of Array Elements using the LINQ Aggregate() Method

• Last Updated : 09 Dec, 2021

Given an array of integers, now we calculate the sum of array elements. So we use the Aggregate() method of LINQ. This method applies a function to all the elements of the source sequence and calculates a cumulative result and return value. This method is overloaded in three different ways:

• Aggregate<TSource, TAccumulate, TResult>(IEnumerable<TSource>, TAccumulate, Func<TAccumulate, TSource, TAccumulate>, Func<TAccumulate, TResult>): It applies an accumulator function on the specified sequence. Here, the seed value is used to define the starting accumulator value, and the function is used to select the final result value.
• Aggregate<TSource, TAccumulate>(IEnumerable<TSource>, TAccumulate, Func<TAccumulate, TSource, TAccumulate>): It applies an accumulator function on the specified sequence. Here, the specified seed value is used to define the starting accumulator value.
• Aggregate<TSource>(IEnumerable<TSource>, Func<TSource, TSource, TSource>): It applies an accumulator function on the specified sequence.

Example:

Input: { 34, 27, 34, 5, 6 }
Output: Sum = 106

Input: { 3, 4, 27, 34, 15, 26, 234, 123 }
Output:  Sum = 466

Approach:

1. Create and initialize an array of integer type

2. Now find the sum of the array using the Aggregate() function.

sum = arr.Aggregate((element1,element2) => element1 + element2);

3. Display the sum of the elements of the array

Example:

C#

 // C# program to finding the sum of the array elements// using Aggregate() Methodusing System;using System.Linq; class GFG{ static void Main(string[] args){         // Creating and initializing the array    // with integer values    int[] arr = { 1, 2, 3, 14, 5, 26, 7, 8, 90, 10};    int sum = 0;         // Finding the sum of the elements of arr    // using Aggregate() Method    sum = arr.Aggregate((element1, element2) => element1 + element2);         // Displaying the final output    Console.Write("Sum is : " + sum);}}

Output:

Sum is : 166
