What is the mean of the following numbers: six, four, five, three, five, and one?

We recall that in order to calculate the mean, we divide the sum of the values by the number of values. In order to calculate the sum of the values in this question, we need to add six, four, five, three, five, and one. This is equal to 24.

There’re six values in our list. This means that in order to calculate the mean, we need to divide 24 by six. This gives us an answer of four. The mean of the numbers is four.
