    Mean is just the average of the numbers. Mean is the mathematical average of a set of numbers. The average is calculated by adding up two or more scores and dividing the total by the number of scores.

    The "mean" is the "average" you're used to, where you add up all the numbers and then divide by the number of numbers.

    The mean of a set of numbers is their average. You find the average of a set of numbers by adding them up and dividing by the number of numbers you have. So, the mean of 3,4,6,9, and 3 is:
                3 + 4 + 6 + 9 + 3      25
                -----------------  =   --  = 5
                       5                5

You will be expected to interpret graphs that show statistical data, using the data to draw conclusions about people’s patterns of behaviour.
