In this tutorial, we are going to learn a writing the java program to find the average of numbers using while loop.

In previous tutorial we have seen the different way to find Average of number

- Java Program to calculate Average Input taken by user.
- Java Program to calculate Average of Integer Array.

## Problem Statement

For any sequence of input numbers, we have to calculate the average of the input numbers from the user using the while loop.

**Case1:** If the Input sequence given by user are 1,2,3,4,5.

The output should be 3.**Case2:** If the Input Sequence given by user are 11,22,33,44,55,66.

The output should be 38.5.

## Our Logic to calculate average using while loop in java

- Our program will declare the variable sum =0, i=0 and also the array is predefined at the beginning.
- Then. Our program will calculate the sum of all the numbers using ‘while loop’.
- Finally, the calculated sum is then divided by the number of elements present in the array (or length of array) and print the result as the output.

## Algorithm to calculate average of the numbers using while loop

**Step 1:** Start

**Step 2:** float sum =0;

**Step 3: **Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);

**Step 4:** input array size

int n= sc.nextInt();

**Step 5:** create an empty array of size n.

**Step 6:** while (i < n) {

arr[i] = sc.nextInt();

sum=sum+arr[i];

i++;

}

**Step 7:** assign a variable, avg as float

average = sum/n;

**Step 8:** print average

**Step 9:** Stop

## Java Program to calculate average using while loop

**Output**

**Explanations**

In this example, the predefined array are {2,4,6,8,10}. Where the size of array is 5 so the average will be

Average = (2+4+6+8+10)/ 5

The output generated is 6.0.
