The Robinsón's electric bills for the last five months have been $157.60, $182.09, $175.15, $166.27, and $162.04. Find the average of the bill. (To find the average, divide the sum by the number of addends.) -What does the sentence in the parentheses mean? do you have to find it by adding all the addends that equals to the number, then divide it by the sum?

in other words it wants you to find the average which is

average = add all sums /number of sums

this is how you will get your average.

average=157.60+182.09+175.15+166.27+162.04/5

=843.15/5

=168.63

so your answer is $168.63
