To find the mean average, you add up all the things (in this case, letters) then divide that number by the amount of categories (in this case words)

..4....+2..+3...+4.......+6.....+2.. +7...+2.+3..+5....+2 ..+4.... +8 = 52
What is the mean number of letters in the words of this sentence.
..1....2...3....4..........5.......6....7......8..9.....10....11..12......13

52 / 13 = 4

So the answer is (b) 4

In statistics, "mean" is another word for "average". There are 13 words, with a total of 52 letters, so the average is 4.

edit: umm, like Nathair said.

Add all the numbers and devide by the number of numbers. It doesn't really matter if you are adding numbers or letters.
