1. ## Harmonic Mean

what would be the harmonic mean of the six values: 34, 27, 45, 55, 22, and 34 =

6/(1/34+1/27+1/45+1/55+1/22+1/34)

how can i solve the above without a calculator?

Thanks

It will be a nasty calculation, you need to find a common denominator as to add the bottom terms.

As mentioned in the above post, it's simply tedious arithmetic. Why do you want to calculate it without a calculator?
