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

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!! =)

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!
