Ok, I just looked up the Reference documentation and
int(raw_input("prompt text")) would be probably better than my suggested
input() - like in the other anwsers you received.
One should maybe note that if the end average calculated should be a
float, then you need to use
sum = 0.0
and should the user entering the data be allowed to use float values you
will probably want to use
