I've got a plain text file with some random numbers seperated by comma's, like this:

5,6,4,7,5,5,6,9,10,

How can I open the plain text file and count up the numbers and then divide them by the number of numbers ?
(sorry for my bad english)

in the example above I would like to get as result:
6,3 (1 digit behind the comma)
this is 5+6+4+7+5+5+6+9+10 / 9
