Alright guys so I have an array. umm.. example.

var state = new Array();
state[0] = "Alabama";
state[1] = "ALASKA";
state[2] = "Arizona";
state[3] = "Arkansas";
state[4] = "California";

Im trying to find out the length of this array in letters. Im thinking something along the lines of "state.length" but that pulls up the number of arrays. I want the letter length. How would I go buy doing that? The assignment is to find the avg of the letter length. so in this case.

state.length/5 <---even though this is deff wrong. But get the point?

Any links or pointers would be very useful.
