Is there a typo here? How come I have 10 numbers, one of them is 673, and the mean is 14?

The answer is 85.3

To find the mean, also known as the average of a set of numbers, you add all the numbers up in the sequence. Then you divide the sum of the numbers by how many numbers there are in the sequence. In this case, the numbers added together equal 853. 853 divided by 10, the amount of numbers in the sequence, is 85.3.

12+74+74+3+7+2+2+2+673+4=853

853/10=85.3

The mean is the average. The total of all the numbers is 853. There are 10 numbers, so the mean should be 85.3. Why is the answer listed as 14?
