How i Calculate the average number of even numbers in an array?
If the array:
1.3700 1.2200 2.2000 2.2800
so the avarage:
1.9
because: (1.22+2.22+2.28)/3=1.9
How i do this?

Check your question properly....
(1.22+2.22+2.28)/3 = 1.90...
What do you mean by odd numbers here in the array?

a = [1.3700 1.2200 2.2000 2.2800];
ac = round(a*100);
mean(ac(mod(ac,2)==0))/100
result
ans =
1.9000

My answer is
Check the index of Even number first
a = [1.3700 1.2200 2.2000 2.2800];
index = mod(single(a*100),2)==0;
Calculate the mean value of Even Number in the array
mean(a(index))

Ya, numel is calculating the number of element. Sorry for my mistake.
However, tomer kapuri, any difficulties you are facing since you say something is not working.

Hi Tomer,
I am not sure if I understand your question correctly.
In MATLAB to calculate the average you would use the function: mean
In your example:
a = [1.37 1.22 2.20 2.28];
yourAverage = mean(a)
Please note in your question you asked about odd number. You could do:
mean(a(2:end))
This is adding the last 3 elements of the array a, and dividing by 3 as you illustrated, but there is something not right with your Maths... as:
(1.22+2.22+2.28)/3 is not 4.2.
Hope this helps.
