One way to parse lines like that is to use String's split method with a one-or-more-blanks regex as the delimiter

Is there any examples to see how to manipulate with columns,to select locations and do calc ?

After the split you have each item in its own array member, so just index the array to get the field you want.
To get the average add up all the values and divide b the number of values.
