Average

The arithmetic mean of a set of data. It provides a measure of the central tendency in the frequency distribution of the data. The other measures of central tendency are the median and the mode.

 

Examples

Average = Sum/Sample size

Sample: 5, 8, 12, 4, 7
Sample size = n = 5

Average = (5+8+12+4+6)/5 = 35/5 = 7
