Hi, I need to find the average of the times below (displayed as a time e.g. 8:15 meaning 8 hours 15 minutes not a decimal e.g. 8.25) I know the formula to find the average of a number is:
Mean = sum of elements / number of elements
The times I need to find the average for are:
8:00 Because there are 12 pieces of data the mean should lie between this number (8:00)
7:45 and this number (7:45). I think this is a rule but I could be wrong.
added together = 90.25
90.25 / 12 = 7.520833333
I tried the formula above and got 7.52083333 does this answer mean that the average time is 7 hours and 52 minutes? Any help is appreciated. If I have missed anything or my question is unclear let me know and ill do my best to clarify.
