I want to find avg cid_date. @day_num is going to be 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180 days only. It will be from a dropdownlist from asp.net page.
Am I on the right track? To set @day_num to negative looks a bit odd. My result looks fine.

declare @ave_Days as int
DECLARE @day_num int
SET @day_num = -60

set ave_Days = (SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT cid_DATE) / case @day_num                                                              
                                                                    WHEN -60 THEN 2
                                                                    WHEN -90 THEN 3
                                                                    WHEN -120 THEN 4
                                                                    WHEN -150 THEN 5
                                                                    WHEN -180 THEN 6
                                                                    ELSE 1 end
                                    FROM         dbo.mytable
                                    where cid_DATE >= DATEADD(DD, @day_num,getdate()) and cid_DATE < GETDATE())
                                   
print ave_Days

You don't need a CASE statement:

set ave_Days = (SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT cid_DATE) / ABS(@day_num / 30)
                                     FROM         dbo.mytable
                                     where cid_DATE >= DATEADD(DD, @day_num,getdate()) and cid_DATE < GETDATE())
