Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from debra, a parent:

a hot dog sales per week monday, 100 = tuesday, 87 = wednesday, 95 = thursday, 125 = friday, 210 = saturday, 250 = sunday, 57 = what is the mean sales per day?


The word mean, when used in mathematics, has the same meaning as average so to find the mean of some numbers, add the numbers and then divide by the number of numbers you added.

I hope this helps,
