## Swift: Getting the average

This entry is part 39 of 41 in the series Swift

Another method to get the average.

```import UIKit

func calculateAverage(total: Int, countOfNumbers: Int) -> Int {
}

func average(algorithm: (Int, Int) -> Int, numbers: Int...) -> Int {
var countOfNumbers = 0
var total = 0

for number in numbers {
total += number
countOfNumbers++
}

return algorithm(total, countOfNumbers)
}

let avg = average(calculateAverage, numbers: 3, 9, 6)

print(avg)```

## Swift: Getting the average

This entry is part 18 of 41 in the series Swift

Here we show how we could get the average of a few or more numbers. In this example, we are using a for loop and a swift function called reduce.

```func averageLoop(numbers: Int...) -> Int {

var sum = 0

for number in numbers {
sum += number
}

return sum / numbers.count
}

func averageReduce(numbers: Int...) -> Int {

return numbers.reduce(0, combine: +) / numbers.count

}

var avgLoop = averageLoop(100, 200, 300)
var avgReduce = averageReduce(100, 200, 300,400,500,600)```
