5 + 5 + 5 (<--- 3 times) + 10 + 10 (<-- 2 times) + 15 + 15 + 15 + 15 + 15 (<-- 5 times) = 110
110/10 = 11

There might be... it's been a while since I've had to learn such things.
Rather than having ___ + ___ + ___ + ___ + ...
you could multiply (using your numbers) 5*3 + 10*2 + 15*5

A simpler way: $\frac{(5*3)+(10*2)+(15*5)}{(5+3+2)} = 11$
