# Design an algorithm to find average of salary

This example is little complex. You will understand it more clearly after reading the user defined data types.

[LIST is an array of EMP, SIZE is size of array]

SUM<-- 0

Repeat For I=1,2,3,........SIZE

SUM<--SUM +LIST[I].SALARY

[END of For I]

AVG <-- SUM / SIZE

Write : 'The average Salary is', AVG

Exit

**Problem:**Design an algorithm to find average of SALARY in an array of EMP struct containing information EMPNO, EMPNAME, and SALARY.**Input:**A list employees of the type struct.**Output :**Display the average of SALARY.**AVG_SALARY(LIST, SIZE)**[LIST is an array of EMP, SIZE is size of array]

SUM<-- 0

Repeat For I=1,2,3,........SIZE

SUM<--SUM +LIST[I].SALARY

[END of For I]

AVG <-- SUM / SIZE

Write : 'The average Salary is', AVG

Exit

**Note**: An algorithm, that perform sub-task, may be called in another algorithm. It is a better practice to divide the given problem into sub-problems ans write the individual algorithm to solve such sub-problems. Write the main algorithm to call the sub-algorithms in order to solve the main problem.
