2) 17 32 2 6 7 3 5 8
im not sure how to do this i know i need to add up but not sure if im right

2) 80

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

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
but im not sure how to add up all these numbers
1)

Thanks. Now I can see the numbers more clearly.

7

8
Positive numbers: 3 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 24
Negative numbers: 6 2  3  5 = 16
24  16 = 8
8/8 = 1
Try number 2. 
i got
32+0+52 + 12 = 96
17 + 9 + 14 = 40
96  40 = 56
56 /8 = 7 as the mean 
Right!

thanks so much i understand it better
