Interest rate over two periods 2009-04-12
Kenneth pose la question :
Hello:

How is the average determined for the following amount if it earns compound interest?

Here are my calculations, but I'm not certain that they are correct: Initial amount invested $500.00:

$500.00 @ 5% = $525.00.

$525.00 @ -2% = $514.50.

$14.50/$500.00 = 2.9% divided by 2 equals an average of 1.45%.

If this average, 1.45%, is correct, how can I use 5% and -2% to determine the same average? Is it possible?

I thank you for your reply.

Power walking 2006-07-30
Wendy pose la question :
I have an exercise routine of 'power walking', approx. 5-6 days per week. I carry a pedometer with me during these walks so that I can keep track of the distance of each walk. I've created a weekly walking chart on my computer, so each time I get back from a walk, I enter my stats, such as kilometers and miles walked that day, as well as my start and finish time. At the end of each week, before I printed out my completed chart, I would calculate out what my average walking distance was, for that particular week.

At the end of each month, I would calculate:
[1] I'd add up my total kilometers and miles walked for that month. (a no brainer ~ I could do that one!)
**But also, I would work out the percentages of the following:
[A] What my average daily distance p/walk was, for that month
[B] What my average time spent, per walk was, for that month

Averages of Averages 2002-12-21
Amy pose la question :
If in the month of October the % of Payments Received was 80.74% and in November it decreased to 69.36%. Can you take the 80.74-69.36/69.36 to get the % of difference. In otherwords can you take the % of difference when the numbers you are comparing are %'s????

Can you also take an average of an average? For example, average number of payments received in October was 25.00%, average number of payments received November was 50.00%, and the average number of payments received in December was 15.00%. Do you average (25.00%, 50.00% and 15.00%) or do you have to go back to the numbers that calculated the averages. For example, October 25.00% was based on 25 payments being received out of a possible 100. So instead of taking the average of the averages, do you take the average payments and the average customers over the 3 months and calculate the average???

What is the difference between Mean and Average? My thinking is the average, is the equal to the sum of all numbers divided by the number of numbers added together.
