## What is Arithmetic Mean?

The arithmetic mean, commonly referred to as the average, is a measure of central tendency that is calculated by adding a set of numbers and dividing the sum by the total number of values. It provides a single value that summarizes the central point of a dataset.

## Formula

The formula for calculating the arithmetic mean is:

Arithmetic Mean (A) = (Î£x) / n

**Î£x:**The sum of all numbers in the dataset.**n:**The number of values in the dataset.

## Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

### What is the difference between arithmetic mean and median?

The arithmetic mean is the sum of all values divided by the number of values, while the median is the middle value in a sorted list of numbers. The mean is affected by extreme values, while the median is more robust to outliers.

### Can I use this calculator for negative numbers?

Yes, the calculator can handle negative numbers. Just enter them in the same way, separated by commas.

### What if I enter non-numeric values?

If you enter non-numeric values, the calculator will prompt you to enter valid numbers. Please ensure all inputs are numbers.

### Is the arithmetic mean always a whole number?

No, the arithmetic mean can be a decimal value, especially when the sum of the numbers divided by the count results in a fraction.

### When should I use the arithmetic mean?

The arithmetic mean is best used when you want a simple average and your data does not contain extreme outliers that could skew the result.

### Can I calculate the mean of a large dataset?

Yes! This calculator can handle a reasonable number of values entered at once, making it suitable for most datasets.
