Average of ASCII values of characters of a given string?


Here we will see how to count the average of the ASCII values of each character in a given string. Suppose the string is “ABC”. The asci values are 65, 66, 67. So the average of these three is 66.

Algorithm

asciiAverage(String)

Begin
   sum := 0
   for each character c in String, do
      sum := sum + ASCII of c
   done
   return sum/length of String
End

Example

 Live Demo

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
float asciiAverage(string str){
   int sum = 0;
   for(int i = 0; i<str.size(); i++){
      sum += int(str[i]);
   }
   return sum/str.size();
}
main() {
   string str;
   cout << "Enter a string: ";
   cin >> str;
   cout << "ASCII average is: " << asciiAverage(str);
}

Output

Enter a string: Hello
ASCII average is: 100
