# What ia the arithmetric means between 68 and 3?

Jun 17, 2018

The arithmetic mean of 68 and 3 is $35 \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

To find the answer we need to know what the arithmetic mean is. I can point you to for instance http://www.statisticshowto.com/arithmetic-mean/

If we have n numbers ${a}_{1} , {a}_{2} , \ldots , {a}_{n}$, the arithmetic mean is simply $\frac{{a}_{1} , {a}_{2} , \ldots , {a}_{n}}{n}$

In our instance we have ${a}_{1} = 68 , {a}_{2} = 3$
Therefore, the arithmetic mean is $\frac{68 + 3}{2} = 35 \frac{1}{2}$
