Average(TSource) Method (IEnumerable(TSource), Func(TSource, Nullable(Int32)))

Enumerable.Average<'TSource> Method (IEnumerable<'TSource>, Func<'TSource, Nullable<Int32>>)


Computes the average of a sequence of nullable Int32 values that are obtained by invoking a transform function on each element of the input sequence.

Namespace:   System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

static member Average<'TSource> : 
        source:IEnumerable<'TSource> *
        selector:Func<'TSource, Nullable<int>> -> Nullable<float>


Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<'TSource>

A sequence of values to calculate the average of.

Type: System.Func<'TSource, Nullable<Int32>>

A transform function to apply to each element.

Return Value

Type: System.Nullable<Double>

The average of the sequence of values, or null if the source sequence is empty or contains only values that are null.

Type Parameters


The type of the elements of source.

Exception Condition

source or selector is null.


The sum of the elements in the sequence is larger than MaxValue.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Average() clause translates to an invocation of Average.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Average<'TSource>(IEnumerable<'TSource>, Func<'TSource, Int32>) to calculate an average.


This code example uses an overload of this overloaded method that is different from the specific overload that this topic describes. To extend the example to this topic, change the body of the selector function.
