The mean of number'''s''' means to find the average. You can't find the mean of one number, because it's impossible to find an average of one number.
Since the mean is the average, you add all the numbers up, then divide.

For example, if your numbers are 10, 7, and 8, you add 10 + 4 + 7 to get 21. 3 (how many numbers there are) divided by 21 is 7. 7 is the average. (Being only 3 numbers, you can't just take the middle number)
