how do I write in code to add up the value of the variables, and divide that value by seven ?

  my $sum=0;
  $sum+=$_ for @line;
  print "average=",$sum/@line,"\n";

You didn't say that your variables were $n1 + $n2 + $n3 + $n4 + $n5 + $n6 + $n7, so I added code to read variables into @line

Here's another way that hopefully is very clear to read.
#!/usr/bin/perl
use List::Util 'sum';
 
open FILE, "file.csv" or die "Can not open file.csv $!\n ;
 
while (<FILE>) {
  my @line=split ',';
  my $avg = sum(@line) / @line;
  print "avg=$avg\n";
}
