Statement of Meaning

Mean Means “Average”

Mean = the average of a group of numbers.

Example

4, 8, 2, 1, 5

The Mean = 4

We find the Mean through evening out the set of numbers

4, 8, 2, 1, 5

Here are the Steps in order to find the Mean in a group of numbers

Step 1

Add up all the numbers in the group and make a total

4, 8, 2, 1, 5

4+8+2+1+5= 20

Step 2

Divide the numbers by the number of addends

4, 8, 2, 1, 5

4+8+2+1+5= 20

In this example the total addends are 5

This example shows you can find the "Mean" ( Average ) within ranges.
