We can get the average and sum of two numbers in Java by performing a mathematical operation and printing out the result. For the *sum***, **we just need to add the two numbers. For the *average*, we need to add the two numbers and divide them by 2. Then, we typecast the value returned to a `float`

.** Typecasting** here means converting the value returned to another value.

// for sum number1 + number2 // for average (float)((number1 + number2)/2)

The syntax to get the sum and average of two numbers in Java

**number1**** and **

: These are the numbers whose sum and average we want to get.**number2**

The value returned is a sum and the average of the two values.

class HelloWorld { public static void main( String args[] ) { // create some numbers int no1 = 23; int no2 = 1; int no3 = 6; int no4 = 100; // get sum int sum1 = no1 + no2; int sum2 = no3 + no4; // get the average float avg1 = (float)((no1 + no2) / 2); float avg2 = (float)((no1 + no2) / 2); // print results to the console. System.out.println(sum1); System.out.println(sum2); System.out.println(avg1); System.out.println(avg2); } }

Get the sum and average of two numbers in Java

- Lines 4-7: We create some integer values. These represent our numbers.
- Lines 10 and 11: We calculate their sum.
- Lines 14 and 15: We calculate their average as well.
- Lines 18-21: We print the results to the console.
