getting average with for loop

Hey ive been struggling with this for a while think its formatted right but im having trouble with how to get the average

FrogStats.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class FrogStats
    {
        public static double GetAverageTongueLength(Frog[] frogs)
        {
            for(int i = 0; i < frogs.Length; i++)
            {
                return i;
            }
        }
    }
}
Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class Frog
    {
        public int TongueLength { get; }

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
        }
    }
}

You could create a variable for the sum of the frog's tongue lengths - let's say total - before the loop.

Then inside the loop sum the tongue lengths:

total += frogs[i].TongueLength;

Then after the loop return total divided by the number of frogs or frogs.Length
