How do i display the average found in float mean() in the main() function?

This is my assignment
Write a C++ program to prompt the user with the following selections:

M[Mean] F[Frequency] Q[Quit]

• If the user selects "M or m" then your program should pass the following one-dimensional array from main ( ) to a function float mean (const int [ ], int ) to find the mean of the array and print the results in function main ( ).

Data [ 40] = {2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 6, 8 ,9, 3, 2,
7, 8, 7, 8, 9, 4, 5, 3, 6, 1,
3, 4, 5, 2, 7, 8, 9, 5, 8, 9,
4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 8, 7, 8, 9, 4,2}

• If the user selects “F or f” then call a user-defined function frequency ( ) that counts the number of responses (frequency) of each number, then pints the frequency along with its histogram as follows:

Response Frequency Histogram
1 1 *
2 3 ***
3 4 ****


• Finally, your program should quit by pressing "Q or q".

float mean()
{
  int sum=0;
  int avg=0;
  int data[40] = {2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 6, 8 ,9, 3, 2,
	         7, 8, 7, 8, 9, 4, 5, 3, 6, 1,
	          3, 4, 5, 2, 7, 8, 9, 5, 8, 9,	
	         4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 8, 7, 8, 9, 4};
	         for(int i = 0; i < 40; ++i)
	         sum+=data[i];
	         avg=sum/40;
	           cout<<"The average of the array is:"<<avg<<endl;
}

and that is the code i have, and it's just not working so far any suggestions?

first you need to have a return statement at the end of your mean function to return avg. Also your function prototype and your function definition don't match. Your prototype has a array and a int but you definition has no variables.

float mean()
{
    //...
    return avg;
}

Then in your cout statement you can do:

cout<< "The average of the array is:" << mean() <<endl;

I dont think I got it right but simply return the avg from the float mean() and display the result.

cout << mean(); //Like this ? :=)
