Mean

Find the mean for each set of data.

Question 5.
14, 10, 9, 7, 14, 16, 14, 4
The mean for the given data is 11.

Explanation:
First, find the sum of the values by adding them all up.
14 + 10 + 9 + 7 + 14 + 16 + 14 + 4 = 88
Next, Divide the sum by the number of values in the data set given.
$$\frac{88}{8}$$ = 11
The mean for the given data is 11.

Question 6.
42, 37, 25, 33, 25, 18, 37
The mean for the given data is 31.

Explanation:
First, find the sum of the values by adding them all up.
42 + 37 + 25 + 33 + 25 + 18 + 37 = 217
Next, Divide the sum by the number of values in the data set given.
$$\frac{217}{7}$$ = 31
The mean for the given data is 31.

Question 7.
30, 75, 60, 10, 50, 85, 25, 45
The mean for the given data is 47.5.

Explanation:
First, find the sum of the values by adding them all up.
30 + 75 + 60 +10 + 50 + 85 + 25 + 45 = 380
Next, Divide the sum by the number of values in the data set given.
$$\frac{380}{8}$$ = 47.5
The mean for the given data is 47.5.

Question 8.
12, 20, 22, 15, 17, 18, 11, 23
The mean for the given data is 17.25.

Explanation:
First, find the sum of the values by adding them all up.
12 + 20 + 22 + 15 + 17 + 18 + 11 + 23 = 138
Next, Divide the sum by the number of values in the data set given.
$$\frac{380}{8}$$ = 17.25
The mean for the given data is 17.25.
