This function cannot be used directly on a list of integers since it requires that the type support an exact division operation, which is indicated by the constraint that the element type must support DivideByInt Floating point types support DivideByInt. To compute the average of a list of integers, see the example in List.averageBy.
This function is named Average in compiled assemblies. If you are accessing the function from a language other than F#, or through reflection, use this name.
The following code example illustrates the use of List.average.
// Compute the average of the elements of a list by using List.average. let avg1 = List.average [0.0; 1.0; 1.0; 2.0] printfn "%f" avg1
