Hello I have a simple problem here, I wanted to make a function that will compute the average (adding the numbers and dividing it by the count). my functions seems to display the wrong result, can you help me put comments on my source code what I did wrong and explain please? Thank you so much for you time.
#average1.py
def main():
n = input("How many numbers do you have?")
sum = 0.0
for i in range(n):
x = input("Enter a number: ")
sum = sum + x
print "\n The average of the number is ", sum/n
--------------------------------------------------------
Example: This is the result when I call the function main()
--------------------------------------------------------
How many numbers do you have?5
Enter a number: 1
The average of the number is 0.2
Enter a number: 2
The average of the number is 0.6
Enter a number: 3
The average of the number is 1.2
Enter a number: 4
The average of the number is 2.0
Enter a number: 5
The average of the number is 3.0
---------------------------------------------------------
I want the the print ---> "\n The average of the number is ", sum/n <---- to appear only once.

But I want the the print ---> "\n The average of the number is ", sum/n <---- to appear only once.

ahhh - move it outside of the for loop
