Aggregate Method

Learn how to apply a function to a collection carrying the result with the Aggregate method.

How to perform an operation carrying the result

The Aggregate method applies a function to a collection, carrying the result to the next element. It aggregates the result of a function. The Aggregate method takes two parameters: a seed and an aggregating function that takes the accumulated value and one element from the collection.
