# Find the average of first N natural numbers

Write a program to find the Average of first N natural number.

Examples:

Input : 10 Output : 5.5 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 5.5 Input : 7 Output : 4.0 1+2+3+4+5+6+7 = 4

Prerequisite : Sum of first n natural numbers.

As discussed in previous post, sum of n natural number n(n+1)/2, we find the Average of n natural number so divide by n is n(n+1)/2*n = (n+1)/2. Here 1 if first term and n is last term.

## C++

`// CPP Program to find the Average of first ` `// n natural numbers ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Return the average of first n natural numbers ` `float` `avgOfFirstN(` `int` `n) ` `{ ` ` ` `return` `(` `float` `)(1 + n)/2; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driven Program ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `n = 20; ` ` ` `cout << avgOfFirstN(n) << endl; ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
