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#.

// 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);
    }
}
