Enumerable.Average Method (IEnumerable<Nullable<Double>>)

 

Computes the average of a sequence of nullable Double values.

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

public static Nullable<double> Average(
	this IEnumerable<Nullable<double>> source
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<Nullable<Double>>

A sequence of nullable Double values to calculate the average of.

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.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

If the sum of the elements is too large to represent as a Double, this method returns positive or negative infinity.

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(IEnumerable<Nullable<Int64>>) to calculate an average.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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, substitute the elements of the source sequence with elements of the appropriate numerical type.

long?[] longs = { null, 10007L, 37L, 399846234235L };

double? average = longs.Average();

Console.WriteLine("The average is {0}.", average);

// This code produces the following output:
//
// The average is 133282081426.333.
