# Check whether the Average Character of the String is present or not

Given a string of alphanumeric characters, the task is to check whether the average character of the string is present or not. Average character refers to the character corresponding to the ASCII value which is the floor of the average value of the ASCII values of all characters in the string.

Examples:

```Input: abcdef
Output: d
Yes
Explanation:
string = "abcdef"
ASCII values of a = 97, b=98,
c=99, d=100, e=101, f=101
Sum of these values is 597
Average is 99.5 ~ 100
Character of ASCII value 100 = d
Hence d is present in the string.

Input: MNFGH
Output: J
No
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: The approach to solve this problem is very simple. It can be solved in the following steps:

• Find the sum of ASCII values of all the characters from the given string.
• Find the average of the ASCII value as average = (sum / numberOfCharacters)
• Get the character of this average ASCII value. Print this character
• Check if this character is present in the string or not. Print Yes or No accordingly.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
