I am trying to build a code that outputs user input a certain way. I need to take user input to store 10 statistics for 3 players over 2 games, and then have the code ask the user which player they would like to see. Instead of showing the stats for the two games though, I need to just display the average. I'm having trouble understanding the concept of how to take the numbers that I've inputted and pull them out to an average. In my code below I have it set to display what I entered for game 1, but need it to spit out the average of the two games instead. Everything else in my code is working exactly like I want it to and as it should. I also have to create a method to do the calculations...
If anyone can give me a hand or at least point me in the right direction, I would truly appreciate it!

I have also commented out a few spots to leave obvious comments, but I did comment out a large section of data that the user needed to input just for the sake of saving time while testing.

Let's say you want Player 1's average of Stat #1 for both games,
This means,
array[0][0][0]
+ array[0][1][0]
/ 2 (games)
= average

This is perfect example how not to make program, learn about OOP, C# is OOP language it will reduce this mess, and make it more maintainable.
In OOP you make Player class with properties like name, score etc ... and methods like calculate average, then you make instance of the player class, pass the array(or Generic List ) to the calculate average method and return and display the result. Easy :)

@Michael27 - So I've been learning programming now for all of 10 weeks in a very part time manner, so forgive me that my program does not look professional. Once I understand the concepts better it will be easier for me to program cleaner.

@Unimportant - I understand that part, my problem is figuring out how to use a method to do that. I have to include a method, loops, array (pre-set and writeable), calculations, and placeholders. I've satisfied all except the calculations and method which is what I'm doing with the average.

I'm a networking guy, just have to learn a small bit of programming so I can complete my bachelors degree.
