## What is Mean in Math

Mean in mathematics is perhaps the most common way of calculating the average value. It is often used in statistical research, as well as in everyday life. If you ask many people how to calculate the average value, then most will remember exactly this kind.

How to calculate Mean value. This is the most familiar option for you to calculate the average value of a combination of numbers, which you probably used a lot in past. The formula is very simple - you add up all the given numbers (calculate the arithmetic sum) and divide the result by the number of numbers.

## Mean calculation example

Let's take the following set of numbers: 3, 9, 2, 5, 7, 8. To find the mean value of that set of numbers, you need to apply a simple formula. First you sum up all the numbers. 5 + 11 + 3 + 6 + 8 + 9 = 42. Now you need to count how many numbers are there in the row: it's 6. The last thing to do is do is to divide the sum into the amount of numbers: 42 / 6 = 7. So 7 is the Mean value of the current data set.

## Why you may need to calculate Mean

Calculation of Mean value is very common and used widely. There are thousands of possible use cases. Compare to Median, which has very specific apllication, Mean can be used not only in statistics. The arithmetic average can be used for calculating the average cost of your expenses per month, or to calculate the time you spend on the road, also in order to find out traffic, productivity, speed and much more.
