### python program to find average of numbers in a list

The python program to calculate average of numbers in a list is as follows:

``````# Owner : TutorialsInhand Author : Devjeet Roy

marks = list(map(int,input("Enter marks: ").strip().split()))

summation = sum(marks)
count = len(marks)

average = summation/count

print("The average is:",average)``````

The output of python program to calculate average of numbers in a list is as follows:

``````PS C:\Users\DEVJEET\Desktop\tutorialsInHand> python code.py
Enter marks: 10 20 30 40
The average is: 25.0``````

### Few important tips about the program

1. First of all, we ask the user to enter the marks. The .strip() method removes blank spaces in the front and back of the long string. The .split() method break the numbers spacewise. Then the map() functions maps each of the numbers to type cast them from string to int and then with all such numbers we get a list.

2. The sum() function returns the sum of all the elements which are present within a list.

3, The len() function returns the length of the list in Python.
