What is arithmetic mean?
The arithmetic mean or arithmetic average is a measure of central tendency obtained by dividing the sum of the set of numbers evaluated by the amount of data in the set.
In mathematical terms, it is expressed as follows:
It is used in various fields of study such as history, economics, anthropology, etc.
How to use the online arithmetic mean calculator?
To use our online arithmetic mean application, we will follow the steps below:
- Select the decimal separator and data separator options according to your preference.
- Enter the data for which we will calculate the arithmetic mean. If there is an error in the data entry, a message will be displayed at the bottom. Please note that there should be no line breaks in the data entry.
- Click on solve.
- Immediately, you will be able to visualize the average and the detail of the calculations made.
Next, we will see more details with an example:
Example of Arithmetic Mean Calculation:
In a classroom, the students' final exam grades were: 6, 7, 9, 5, 8, 10, 6, 6, 7, 8, 9, 5, 4, 3, 1, 5, 6.
Calculate the arithmetic mean.
We enter the data into the calculator:
By clicking on Solve we obtain the following:
Sum of data: 105
Count of Data: 17
Arithmetic Mean: 6.1765
With the button at the bottom, you can copy the link to the problem to send it to a colleague or save it to review the results later without retyping the data. Also, at the bottom of the button, you will find two links to use the same data to calculate the geometric mean or use our harmonic mean calculator.
Although calculating the arithmetic mean is a simple procedure, it is always essential to have tools to confirm the data obtained and avoid errors in the results before submitting any work or homework to your school. We are sure that this application will be handy to continue improving your learning.
