add all the #s up, then divide by the number of numbers.

It's the average. You add all the numbers together and however many numbers there are you divide by that number. For example:

12, 11, 7, and 10 Add them and they equal 40. There are four numbers so you divide 40 by 4 and get 10. That's the mean
