avg(scope, expressionStr)

This computes the arithmetic mean of the value of a expressionStr in a scope. See avg_if() for a for a related conditional operator.

scope describes the notes to be examined and may be any group designator including a find() query.

expressionStr may be any valid expression, but will usually be a reference to an attribute; short form Boolean attribute expressions are acceptable.

For example:

$MyNumber = avg(children(/Catalog),$Price); 

returns the average price of all the items in Catalog.
