How to Calculate the Average using Arrays in Golang?

Given an array of n elements, your task is to find out the average of the array.

  • Accept the size of the array.
  • Accept the elements of the array.
  • Store the sum of the elements using for loop.
  • Calculate Average = (sum/size of array)
  • Print the average.



n = 4
array = 1, 2, 3, 4

Output :

sum = 10
average = 2.5



// Golang program to calculate the average of numbers in array
package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
    // declaring an array of values
    array := []int{1, 2, 3, 4}
    // size of the array
    n := 4
    // declaring a variable to store the sum
    sum := 0
    // traversing through the array using for loop
    for i := 0; i < n; i++ {
        // adding the values of array to the variable sum
        sum += (array[i])
    // declaring a variable avg to find the average
    avg := (float64(sum)) / (float64(n))
    // typecast all values to float
    // to get the correct result
    fmt.Println("Sum = ", sum, "\nAverage = ", avg)


Sum =  10 
Average =  2.5

Here, n is the size of the array and sum is to store the sum of all the values of the array. Using a for loop we get the sum of the elements of the array. After calculating the sum, we must convert the data types of the sum and size of the array to float, so that we don’t lose any decimal values.
