Pass array to method return average

Hi All,

I have tried several different ways of coding for the same task. However, the same Out of Bounds exception keeps appearing. The goal here is to pass an array to a method and have the method return the average of the array. But I can't even get the method to print the average - let alone return it. Here's the code, what's wrong here!? ... Thanks for your time.

Here you are trying to access an element with index one larger than the last one. Index of the last element is list.length - 1.

And please put your code inside code tags.

The quieter you are, the more you are able to hear.
I agree. Here's the link:
