Average [mean] calculation using Libre Office

About

In mathematics and statistics, average [also called the mean] is the sum of a list of numbers divided by the size of the list. "In other words it is the sum divided by the count." [1]

Example

Count:
Un-arranged values are: 2, 6, 1, 3, 3

Re-arranged values 1, 2, 3, 3, 6 = 15

step by step: 


1. rearrange values from least to greatest for example: 2, 6, 1, 3, 3

2. Add all values to calculate sum for example: 1 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 6 = 15

3. divide  12 / 4 [4 is the count]

4. average [mean] = 3
