If Rosalia travels 1000 km
Sheree travels 280 km
Daniel travels 50 km
Mica travels 200 km
Connor travels 500 km
Eric travels 250 km
Hillary travels 300 km

What was the mean distance travelled?

How do you arrive at the answer?

This is Grade Four level.


The mathematical term "mean" has the same meaning as the term "average". Hence, to find the mean of the list of numbers above, find the sum of the numbers and then divide the sum by the number of numbers. That is find

1000 + 280 + 50 + 200 + 500 + 250 + 300 and then divide this sum by 7.
