Array question

Let's say I want to input (10) values into an array, and have them averaged, ok. Should I read each number in separately and them set those numbers to an array address? And is there an '.average' method? How can I make this quick and easy to follow (mostly for myself). Thanks in advance.

Use a for loop to read in numbers, use a var like sum to sum the values as you read them in and then finally divide by the number of elements.
There is no .average method. There is .length- it is not a method.
