    Please post your code here, not an image.
    Also copy the full text of the error message.

    Please be sure to wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    You're calling System.out.println outside of a function. Either put that statement in main or the average function.
