Average is the sum of numbers divided by n. It is also called the mean average.

Here is an example to find the average of numbers:

Let's say you want to find the average of four numbers, 26, 14, 11, and 9.

First you need to add up those 4 numbers. 26 + 14 + 11 + 9 = 60.

Then you need to divide the result (60), by the numbers of numbers there are, in this case 4, because there are four numbers you want to find the average.

60 divided by 4 = 15, so the average of the numbers 26, 14, 11, and 9 is 15.
