Initialize total to zero

Initialize counter to zero

Start a loop:

... Use scanf () to read a number

... Add the number to the total

... Increment the counter

End loop

mean = number / counter

Keep in mind that you need to use a <float> or <double> or you will get integer division that will truncated the decimal places.

Yes. Many people can solve that.

It's a middle-school level problem.

The word "average" , in general, it refers to some middle value. The most common is the "arithmetic mean". To calculate an arithmetic mean of a set of numbers do this:

* Add up the numbers. Call the sum S.

* Keep track of how many numbers there are. Call that N.

* Divide S by N: A = S / N.

* The result (A) is the arithmetic mean.
