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.
