The average is adding all 5 numbers and then dividing by 5. this gives us 44.6 as the average.
It is easy to see that the majority of the numbers fall well above the average. The mean would be where the majority fall and in this case it is 73.3. this is the mean.
Average is the total of all individuals divided by the number of individuals.
Mean is the number that the majority are near. It excludes the extreme highs and lows.
