Averages

The term Average refers to the sum of all observations divided by the total number of observations. Average is used quite regular in our day to day life. For example to calculate the average marks of the students, Average height of a particular group etc. The term average is also referred to as ‘Mean’. Basic formula to calculate the average is as follows:

Solution: First 10 Prime number are 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29.

                  Hence, Average = {2+3+5+7+11+13+17+19+23+29} / 10

                                                = 129 / 10

                                                = 12.90

So, Average of First 10 Prime numbers is 12.90.

Example. The total number of sales visits made by a Salesman in the month of June is 90. What is the Average visit he makes per day?

Solution: Number of days in the month of June are 30

             Hence, Average Visit per day = Number of total visits / Number of total days

                                                      = 90 / 30

                                                      = 3

So, the salesman makes 3 visits per day.
