In colloquial language, an **average** is the sum of a list of numbers divided by the number of numbers in the list. In mathematics and statistics, this would be called the *arithmetic mean*. However, the word *average* may [^{may in what context? Still "in mathematics"?}] also refer to the median, mode, or other central or typical value. In statistics, these are all known as measures of central tendency.
