Over 10 plays, a football team gained 63 yards. On 4 of the plays the team gained 0 yards, on 1 play the team lost 3 yards and on 1 play the team lost 6 yards. What was the team's mean gain, in yards, per play for the remaining plays. I did 63 plus 9 equals 72 divided by 4 equals 18 is this right???
