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";

}

Open in new window
