What's the stepbystep proccess to find the average? It's been years since I've been taught how to find the average of a set of numbers.. Thanks whoever can help!

Ms. Sue,
Add all of the numbers together. Then divide the total by the number of numbers you have.
Example:
28 + 35 + 44 + 20 = 127
127 / 4 = 31.75

Pinky,
Thanks! I kept assuming that's how to do it, and I guess I was right, but wasn't sure if it was correct... Thanks Ms. Sue!! =)

Ms. Sue,
You're welcome, Pinky.

anon,
you add the numbers together and divide by the how many numbers there are.
Ex:
1+2+3+4+5=15
since there are five numbers (1,2,3,4,5) you divide by 5
15/5=3
3 is the average
hope this helped!
