# How do i create a number of inputs from an input

## Question:

I’m brand new to this, 10 days in.

Ive been thinking how I could solve this for 30 min. Please help.

## Find Average

You need to calculate the average of a collection of values. Every value will be valid number. The average must be printed with two digits after the decimal point.

## Input-

On the first line, you will receive N – the number of the values you must read

On the next N lines you will receive numbers.## Output-

On the only line of output, print the average with two digits after the decimal point.

`Input 4 1 1 1 1 Output 1.00 Input 3 2.5 1.25 3 Output 2.25`

From what I see, I figure I need to create as much inputs as the N of the first one is and then input the numbers Id like to avarage and then create a formula to avarage them. I may be completely wrong in my logic, in any case Id be happy for some advice.

So far I tried creating a while loop to create inputs from the first input. But have no clue how to properly sintax it and continue with making the new inputs into variables I can use

```
a=int(input())
x=1
while x<a or x==a:
float(input())
x=x+1
```

## Answers:

There were few things that you were doing wrong. when the numbers are decimals use `float`

not `int`

.

If you are looking for a single line input this should be how it’s done.

When writing the code please use proper variables and add a string that’s asking for the input.

```
total = 0
first_num=int(input("Number of inputs: "))
number = input("Enter numbers: ")
input_nums = number.split()
for i in range(first_num):
total = total + int(input_nums[i])
average = total/first_num
print(average)
```

If you are looking for a multiline output This should be how it’s done.

```
first_num=int(input("Number of inputs: "))
x=1
total = 0
while x<first_num or x==first_num:
number = float(input("Enter numbers: "))
total = total + number
x=x+1
avg = total/first_num
print(avg)
```

```
a=int(input('Total number of input: '))
total = 0.0
for i in range(a):
total += float(input(f'Input #{i+1}: '))
print('average: ', round(total/a,2))
```

Modified a bit on your version to make it work
