B. Lesson Proper

Example 1: What is the Mean of


these numbers?

6, 11, 7

 Add the numbers: 6 + 11 + 7 =


24

 Divide by how many numbers


(there are 3 numbers): 24 / 3 8
=

The Mean is 8

Example 2: Look at these


numbers:

3, 7, 5, 13, 20, 23, 39, 23, 40, 23,


14, 12, 56, 23, 29

The sum of these numbers is? 330

There are fifteen numbers.

The mean is equal to 330 / 15 =


22

The mean of the above


numbers is 22
C. Generalization
The mean is the average of
the numbers.

It is easy to calculate: add up


all the numbers, then divide
by how many numbers there
are.

In other words it is the sum


divided by the count.
D. Application

Try it yourself!
Average weight of a group of
chimpanzees

 Chimp 1 weighs 53 kg 53 + 41 + 58
=
 Chimp 2 weighs 41 kg 3
152
 Chimp 3 weighs 58 kg =
3
= 50.66
The answer is 50.66!

IV. Evaluation:

2. Find the mean driving speed for 6 different cars on the same
highway.
66 mph, 57 mph, 71 mph, 54 mph, 69 mph, 58 mph
3. Find the mean swimming time rounded to the nearest tenth:
2.6 min, 7.2 min, 3.5 min, 9.8 min, 2.5 min
