    what type of mean would best fit with this

    Imagine f(X) is some function (transform) of X, and g(X) is another function
    (transform) such that X = g(f(X)) (i.e., g(X) reverses or undoes what f(X)
    did to X). We could then def ine some new kind of mean of X in general as:

    X= g(∑f(X) / N)

    what type of mean fits with this data(absolute mean, root-mean squared, geometric mean, or harmonic mean) and why?



    my guess was geometric mean...but i dont really know

    Hey moe6142.

    What is the definition of all of these terms? Some I'm familiar with, others I'm not.
