Ms. Sue,
Why are there spaces between some of the numbers? Please list them in column form.

Marko,
i need to find the mean of each set of data i know to find the mean i add all the numbers , then divide by the total numbers that were added
1) would be divided by 8
2) would be divided by 7

Ms. Sue,
Thanks. Now I can see the numbers more clearly.

8
Positive numbers: 3 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 24
Negative numbers: 6 2  3  5 = 16
24  16 = 8
8/8 = 1
Try number 2.

Marko,
i got
32+0+52 + 12 = 96
17 + 9 + 14 = 40
96  40 = 56
56 /8 = 7 as the mean
