# Average of Squares of Natural Numbers?

The average of the square of Natural Number is calculated by adding all the squares up to n natural numbers and then dividing it by the number.

## Sample

Average of square of first 2 natural numbers is 2.5 ,

1^{2} + 2^{2} = 5 => 5/2 = 2.5.

There are two methods for calculating this is programming −

- Using Loops
- Using Formula

**Calculating average of square of natural numbers using loops**

This logic works by finding the squares of all natural numbers. By loop from 1 to n finding square of each and adding to the sum variable. Then dividing this sum by n.

Program to find the sum of squares of natural numbers −

## Example Code

#include <stdio.h> int main() { int n = 2; float sum = 0; for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) { sum = sum + (i * i); } float average = sum/n; printf("The average of the square of %d natural numbers is %f", n,average); return 0; }

## Output

The average of the square of 2 natural numbers is 2.500000

**Calculating average of square of natural numbers using formula.**

There are mathematical formulas to make calculations easy. For calculating the sum of squares of natural numbers the formula is ‘ n*(n+1)*((2*n)+1)/6’ diving this by the number n gives the formula : ‘ (n+1)*((2*n)+1)/6’.

Program to find the sum of squares of natural numbers −

## Example Code

#include <stdio.h> int main() { int n = 2; float average = ((n+1)*((2*n)+1)/6); printf("The average of the square of %d natural numbers is %f", n,average); return 0; }

## Output

The average of the square of 2 natural numbers is 2.500000
