In brief: Depends on age
This depends on the age and also on what part of the arm is broken.
For an adult the average is about 8 weeks, but will vary depending on which bone and even what part of the bone is broken. For kids the healing time is faster and the lower the age, the faster the healing.

In brief: 6-8 weeks
Average time for the bone to heal not the injury to be over. A lot depends upon location, degree, health , associated injury and soft tissues.
