Algorithm and Flowchart to Compute Average of Three Numbers


What is Average?

Average is a mathematical term used in taking the appropriate number among the list of numbers. Formula for Average = Sum of all values / No. of values in the list.

What is Average used for?

There are various scenarios in which we have to say a single value of things. For that instance we use average number for single value. For Eg. If in a batsman scores 20 runs in 1st match, 37 runs in 2nd match and 78 runs in third match. So we can say Average of the batsman is (20+37+78)/3=45. It says that the batsman can score around 45 runs in a match. Here, we can see that we are converting multiple values into single value to make things easier.

So in Conclusion I will be reading three numbers and finding average of them by adding the numbers and then dividing the sum with 3.

Algorithm for Average of three numbers

Declare a variable a,b,c and avg as int; Read two numbers a,b and c; avg=(a+b+c)/3; Print avg;

Here in this algorithm we declare 4 variables as integers. Three variables for input one variable to store the result. We input two numbers lets say 15 , 20 and 25.In the program we compute average by sum of these numbers i.e.. 15+20+25=60 and dividing it with 3 i.e.. number of values. Therefore the result 20 get stored in avg and at last we print the value.

Implementation of Average of 3 numbers in C:

#include<stdio.h> int main() { int a, b, c, avg; //Declaring the variables printf("Enter three variables:\n"); printf("a:"); scanf("%d", & a); //Reading Variable a printf("b:"); scanf("%d", & b); //Reading Variable b printf("c:"); scanf("%d", & c); //Reading Variable c avg = (a + b + c) / 3; printf("\nAverage of %d,%d and %d is %d", a, b, c, avg); }
