Mean refers to average. To get an average you add up all the numbers in your set. Here, your set is 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 ( I have arranged them in numerical order). You also need to know the number of numbers in your set. Here, you have five numbers in your set.

I will call the number of numbers in the set n, and thus n = 5 here.

Once you have the sum of all the numbers, divide by n.

Here, the sum is 40 (6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10). Now divide by n.

40/5 = 8.

Thus the average, or MEAN is 8.
