# Mean - math word problems

the arithmetic mean (simply the mean or average) is the sum of a collection of numbers divided by the count of numbers in the collection. The arithmetic mean is the most commonly used and readily understood measure of central tendency in a data set. It is a statistical characteristic of the center of a given data set.Arithmetic mean is a quantity very sensitive to extreme values, so the median and mode are also used in practice. Mode is the most common value. The median halves the ordered file.
