yeah it works not but everything gets printed into one row. How do I split it up into columns.

Hey maybe I should clarify myself.

So basically there are many rows so I want to the bin average for multiple rows

How about this:
awk '{for(i=3;i<=NF;i+=3) printf "%s ", ($(i-2)+$(i-1)+$i)/3}' file

hey that works. Now I need to scale up to average over a range of 40 numbers

 awk '{for(i=40;i<=NF;i+=40) printf "%s ", ($(i-39)+$(i-38)$+(i-37)+$(i-36)+$(i-35)+$(i-34)+$(i-33)+$(i-32)+$(i-31)+$(i-30)+$(i-29)+$(i-28)+$(i-27)+$(i-26)+$(i-25)+$(i-24)+$(i-23)+$(i-22)+$(i-21)+$(i-20)+$(i-19)+$(i-18)+$(i-17)+$(i-16)+$(i-15)+$(i-14)+$(i-13)+$(i-12)+$(i-11)+$(i-10)+$(i-9)+$(i-8)+$(i-7)+$(i-6)+$(i-5)+$(i-4)+$(i-3)+$(i-2)+$(i-1)+$i)/40}' file1.txt > file2.txt

i put this in but there is something wrong. hope someone can help. Basically if i have a file with 40 number 1's, the average is not 1 but 5.95.

For longer range it is easier to iterate through the fields to calculate the sum. And also check if you really have *exactly* 40 1's in your test file.

awk -v r=40 '{for(i=r;i<=NF;i+=r){for(j=0;j<r;j++){sum+=$(i-j)}printf "%s ", sum/r;sum=0}}' file

Or in a more readable way if you prefer (I do!)

awk -v r=40 '{
	printf "%s ", sum/r
}' file

Hey it works

hey thanks it works

but for some reason it does not treat each row independently

 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ... n=40
 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ... n=40
 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ... n=40

The output will look like this
1 1 1
