So the definition of mean is written as

$$\bar{x}=\frac{\text{sum of data values}}{\text{number of data values}}$$

I've updated the electronic dice on MathsStarters. Includes ready to go Multo and Addo cards.
Variations of dice include two six-sided dice, two ten-sided dice or two custom dice (0 to 20) - the dice can show multiplication or addition and answers.
