• To find the mean of something is the same as finding the average
• In maths mean, means that you have some numbers, you add them up and then divide the answer by however many numbers you added together!!
• 'Mean' doesn't actually mean what you've said. That's just the way to calculate it. 'Mean' is the average of a list of different quantities.
• Mean is actually weight average over quantity. For example if 4 boys are 70kgs in weight and 2 boys are 30kgs in weight, mean would be 60kgs and not 50kgs.
• The mean is where you add all the numbers together and divide by how many sets of numbers there are! Basically you are doing the average. ==

A number x is said to be a factor of another number y if x divides into y without remainder. More technically, there must exist a number z such that x*z = y.

Factors need not be numbers, they can be algebraic expressions. For example, (p+1) is a factor of (p2 - 2p - 3) - - - which is (p+1)(p-3)
