Add up all numbers and divide them by the number of terms to obtain the arithmetic mean. Depending on the specific conditions of calculations it is sometimes easier to divide each number by the number of a data set and sum the result.
2
Use, for example, included in the Windows calculator, if you calculate the average arithmetic value in mind is not possible. You can open it using run dialog programs. To do this, press the "hot keys" WIN + R or click start and select in the main menu the command "Run". Then type in the input box and press calc on the keypad Enter or click "OK".
