$1.75$

#### Explanation:

The formula you need is

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{mean" = (sum("values"))/"number of values}}$

In this case, the values represent the number of goals and the number of values represents the number of matches.

Notice that Brock played a total of $8$ football games, but that he only scored in $7$ of those matches. However, you still need to take into account the value $0$ and count it for the total number of matches.

Plug in your values to find

$\text{mean} = \frac{2 + 3 + 1 + 0 + 3 + 2 + 1 + 2}{8}$

"mean" = 14/8 = color(green)("1.75")
