# LINQ | How to find average of the given sequence?

In LINQ, you can find the average of the given sequence by using the Average method. This method returns the average of the elements present in the given sequence or collection. It returns nullable, non-nullable decimal, double, floats, int, etc. values. It does not support query syntax in C#, but it supports in VB.NET. It is available in both Enumerable and Queryable classes in C#. Example 1:

 `// C# program to find the average  ` `// the given array ` `using` `System; ` `using` `System.Linq; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``static` `public` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Data source ` `        ``int``[] sequence = { 20, 45, 50, 79, 90, 79, 89, 100, 567, 29 }; ` ` `  `        ``// Display the sequence ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"The sequence is:"``); ` `        ``foreach``(``int` `s ``in` `sequence) ` `        ``{ ` `            ``Console.WriteLine(s); ` `        ``} ` ` `  `        ``// Finding the average of the element  ` `        ``// present in the given array ` `        ``// Using Average function ` `        ``double` `result = sequence.Average(); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Average is: {0}"``, result); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```The sequence is:
20
45
50
79
90
79
89
100
567
29
Average is: 114.8
```

Example 2:

 `// C# program to find the average ` `// salary of the employee ` `using` `System; ` `using` `System.Linq; ` `using` `System.Collections.Generic; ` ` `  `// Employee details ` `class` `Employee { ` ` `  `    ``public` `int` `emp_id ` `    ``{ ` `        ``get``; ` `        ``set``; ` `    ``} ` `    ``public` `string` `emp_name ` `    ``{ ` `        ``get``; ` `        ``set``; ` `    ``} ` `    ``public` `string` `emp_gender ` `    ``{ ` `        ``get``; ` `        ``set``; ` `    ``} ` `    ``public` `string` `emp_hire_date ` `    ``{ ` `        ``get``; ` `        ``set``; ` `    ``} ` `    ``public` `int` `emp_salary ` `    ``{ ` `        ``get``; ` `        ``set``; ` `    ``} ` `} ` ` `  `public` `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``// Main method ` `    ``static` `public` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` `        ``List emp = ``new` `List() { ` `            ``new` `Employee() { emp_id = 209, emp_name = ``"Anjita"``, emp_gender = ``"Female"``, emp_hire_date = ``"12/3/2017"``, emp_salary = 20000 }, ` `                ``new` `Employee() { emp_id = 210, emp_name = ``"Soniya"``, emp_gender = ``"Female"``, emp_hire_date = ``"22/4/2018"``, emp_salary = 30000 }, ` `                ``new` `Employee() { emp_id = 211, emp_name = ``"Rohit"``, emp_gender = ``"Male"``, emp_hire_date = ``"3/5/2016"``, emp_salary = 40000 }, ` `                ``new` `Employee() { emp_id = 212, emp_name = ``"Supriya"``, emp_gender = ``"Female"``, emp_hire_date = ``"4/8/2017"``, emp_salary = 40000 }, ` `                ``new` `Employee() { emp_id = 213, emp_name = ``"Anil"``, emp_gender = ``"Male"``, emp_hire_date = ``"12/1/2016"``, emp_salary = 40000 }, ` `                ``new` `Employee() { emp_id = 214, emp_name = ``"Anju"``, emp_gender = ``"Female"``, emp_hire_date = ``"17/6/2015"``, emp_salary = 50000 }, ` `        ``}; ` ` `  `        ``// Find the average salary of the employee ` `        ``// Using Average () method ` `        ``var` `res = emp.Average(a => a.emp_salary); ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Average salary of the Employees: {0}"``, res); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Average salary of the Employees: 36666.6666666667
```
