# How do you find the mean of $7420,$3210, $6720,$5780, $1850,$4350?

The formula for mean is $\frac{\sum x}{n}$.

#### Explanation:

We can find the mean of these numbers by using the mean formula.

$\frac{\sum x}{n}$

$\sum$ is a symbol meaning 'sum.' In this case, it tells us to take the sum of $x$, which refers to the values we're finding the mean of.

$n$ stands for the number of terms in the set. In this problem, there are $6$ numbers.

$\frac{7420 + 3210 + 6720 + 5780 + 1850 + 4350}{6} \approx 4888.3$

Therefore, the mean is approximately $4888.3$.
